Health Impact Assessments: Promising Practices and Lessons Learned in Arizona

The League, in conjunction with Vitalyst Health Foundation, present an upcoming webinar, Health Impact Assessments: Promising Practices and Lessons Learned in Arizona. Health Impact Assessments (HIAs) are gaining popularity in the United States as a way to understand how public policies and programs may affect health – for better or worse. Arizona has a solid track record, with 20 HIAs either completed or in progress.

Unlike its well-known counterpart – Environmental Impact Statement - HIAs are designed to anticipate the impact on individual and community health versus environmental impacts. As a result, decision makers can better understand how a proposed public policy may impact health. Arizona HIA practitioners have produced a number of successful HIAs, addressing issues such as affordable housing, parks and open space, and transportation options.

Please join us for an informative webinar on the basics of Health Impact Assessments as well as hear about the valuable information and the lessons learned from doing an HIA.
