Facilitating: Livable Communities : Healthy Neighborhoods National Building Museum

Facilitating: Livable Communities : Healthy Neighborhoods National Building Museum.

An honor to facilitate:

  • Scott Ball, planner with Duany, Plater-Zyberk & Company
  • Terry M. Bellamy, mayor of the city of Asheville, North Carolina
  • Irene H. Yen, PhD, MPH, associate professor, University of California, San Francisco

Studies show that our homes and neighborhoods play a large role in public health, especially for an aging population. Walkable, safe, and connected communities promote exercise, access to healthy food options, and an active social life. Panelists discuss how planning, design, and community engagement help create livable communities for older adults and everyone.
