Urban Health Journalism Workshop: The built environment's impact on public health

The "built environment" encompasses all buildings, spaces, and products that are created or modified by people, including homes, schools, workplaces, parks/recreation areas, greenways, business areas, and transportation systems. It extends overhead, underground and across the country. It includes land-use planning and policies that impact our communities in urban, rural, and suburban areas. And every bit of it has an effect on our health. A panel at the Urban Health Journalism Workshop explored ways in which people's health is impacted by that environment.
