There is increasing acknowledgment that many health issues such as health disparities and preventive health care are profoundly influenced by factors outside the traditional realm of health and health care. Factors such as poverty, employment, crime, transportation and poor access to healthy foods contribute to disparities in life expectancy as well as to health-related quality of life. Concerns about how to address these factors have led to a focus on “health in all policies,” in which policies in non-traditional sectors such as transportation, economic development, housing, employment, and agriculture ideally would contribute to health and health equity. The Health and Built Environment Committee of the Consortium for a Healthier Miami-Dade is partnering with the Healthiest Weight Division of the Florida Health Department to bring this important training opportunity to Miami-Dade County.
