Healthy Communities Committee

Welcome to the Healthy Communities Committee! Health is impacted by where we live, work, learn and play. 

The APA Colorado Healthy Communities Committee (HCC) is a group of professionals that promote the creation of healthy communities in Colorado. HCC seeks to influence the planning profession by identifying opportunities and strategies that encourage the implementation of healthy community planning. HCC acts as a clearinghouse and resource for best practices and educational opportunities that encourage professionals to integrate health by promoting concepts, language, and policies in their role. As members of this committee, we infuse the recognition that planning has an effect on the determinants of community health and we promote equitable practices in planning to further support healthy community principles.

 

If you’re interested in learning more, sharing your community’s experience or brainstorming ways to better integrate health and planning, we’d love to hear from you!
