Becoming one of the healthiest cities in the country doesn’t just happen – it takes ideas, deliberate planning and action from lots of community residents. You can participate in the process of brainstorming ways to transform San Antonio into one of the country’s healthiest cities by participating in the 2nd Annual Public Health & The Built Environment Conference, which takes place May 7 at the UTSA downtown campus.
The daylong event features national experts on creating healthy, active communities such as Chuck Marohn of Strong Towns and John Simmerman of Active Towns. The event also includes staff from the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas who will discuss how to create healthier environments to live, work and play in the community.
Community members, elected officials, designers, planners, engineers, developers, health professionals, health advocates, school officials, bankers, community development lenders and other interested individuals, groups or organizations are invited to attend and actively participate.
The conference, hosted by San Antonio Metropolitan Health District, begins at 7:30 a.m. and continues through 5 p.m. at UTSA’s downtown campus, 501 W. Durango Blvd. To register, or for more information, visit www.sanantonio.gov/Health/News/ Events.aspx.
