New Partnerships for Healthier Neighborhoods

In 2009, BARHII and Planning for Healthy Places convened a roundtable of redevelopment and public health departments in the San Francisco Bay Area to discuss how health-promoting strategies can be incorporated into the process of rebuilding low-income or “blighted” neighborhoods. This report explores the potential for collaboration between these agencies and shows how both can overcome their own institutional challenges to create a strong partnership to improve community health.
