Creating Healthy Communities–The Intersection of Planning and Public Health


Across the U.S. local governments are beginning to include goals and objectives that promote public health into their comprehensive plans. In Delaware the project, funded by the CDC through the American Planning Association, is an example of planning and public health in action.
