Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA) - A Day in the Life of an Urban Planner with a Public Health Impact
What role can urban planners play to improve health? How do you embed a public health lens in municipal plans and policies? Given that the built environment, land use and transportation systems are among determinants of population health, this webinar will explore the role of an urban planner with a focus on public health and how urban planning can help support more socially just and equitable communities. Ali Shaver, Healthy Built Environment Coordinator with Nova Scotia Health Authority, will describe a typical day on the job, and give you a sense of what you can expect in a public health-focused urban planning career.
This session is part of the Exploring Careers in Public Health Webinar Series.
