Louisiana APA 2022 State Conference: Planning and Public Health

November 9 - 11 | Gallier Hall, 545 St Charles Ave, New Orleans

How does the built environment impact health outcomes for residents of Louisiana? What strategies can planners use to ensure policy and long-range plans are implemented effectively and equitably to improve quality of life in all communities? What initiatives are Louisiana planners leading in resiliency planning, transit, and affordable housing?

Over the course of 2.5 days of programming, panels and mobile workshops, participants will engage and learn about local and statewide planning efforts related to public health, such as: health and the built environment, safe and complete streets, connections between health and housing, planning for vulnerable populations, and economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.
