Improving Health Through Safe Routes to Parks and Health Retail Webinar

Improving Health Through Safe Routes to Parks and Health Retail Webinar

Through joint efforts between the Sacramento County Department of Public Health and WALKSacramento we are thrilled to have community-based organizations, government agencies, and other community allies learn how safe routes to parks and retail can help improve health outcomes. During the webinar, we will discuss how a Safe Routes approach can improve community health, key data on Sacramento County health outcomes and built environment conditions, and how this data can be used to justify the need for improved access to parks and healthy foods in communities. This webinar is kicking off our Safe Routes to Parks and Healthy Retail webinar series, which will highlight strategies and resources for implementing Safe Routes policies, planning, and programs. Learn more about the project and download our Toolbox resources here.
