Our built environment influences all aspects of our lives, including our health. UFC 2-100-01 specifies healthy community planning as a key principle of master planning. How do we do that holistically? Learn ways the Army is implementing healthy community principles in master planning. Panelists will discuss the Healthy Army Communities initiative and the tools it offers; how to assess how supportive the built environment is to healthy behaviors; how to engage stakeholders in a charrette environment; and the specific actions master plans can include to support a healthy community.  

This panel presentation will allow FPD members to interact directly with subject matter experts on healthy community planning and the Healthy Army Communities program.

Learning Objectives:

·         Gain an understanding of the tools developed for the Healthy Army Communities program

·         Learn ways to apply that methodology in your master plan process

·         Explore new techniques for stakeholder engagement throughout the master plan process

·         Understand the specific strengths and weaknesses of the healthy community planning integration process at several pilot installations

Importance to FPD Members:

·         Hear lessons learned and best practices from healthy community experts

·         Translate those lessons into tools useful in execution of master plan

·         Broaden master planning methods by learning tools from the public health sector
