HPRG: ARC models for future growth

Primary tabs

Let's talk about making Healthy Places. Each month, the Healthy Places Research Group brings together researchers, students, practitioners, community advocates and others from an array of disciplines to learn more about how the places where we live, work, go to school, and recreate can influence our health.

In February Tom Weyandt, Director, Comprehensive Planning Division, Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), will talk about ARC's recently-released growth projections for the Atlanta region and the types of development projects recently-recognized by the ARC in their Developments of Excellence award program that are good models for future growth.

The Healthy Places Research Group (HPRG) is a collaborative effort involving Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health, Georgia Tech's College of Architecture, and the Center for Quality Growth and Regional Development. It also involves professionals from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), researchers, students, and others interested in exploring the co-relationship between the built environment and the health of communities.

Participation is open to anyone interested in exploring the characteristics and advancement of healthy places.

The Tuesday, February 5 meeting will be held at:
Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health
Grace Crum Rollins Building, Rita Anne Rollins Room, 8th floor
1518 Clifton Road, Atlanta, GA
