DASH – NY 2nd Annual Coalition Conference

March 24, 2014 – March 25, 2014 all-day

Learn how economic and infrastructure strategies can reduce obesity and chronic disease by creating more equitable communities. These economically vibrant communities can make good food, opportunities to be active and preventive healthcare services accessible to all.

The conference will focus on innovative, replicable and sustainable solutions for healthy community development. Such solutions involve creating jobs/training opportunities, improving employee health and productivity, increasing active living through infrastructure design, and expanding access to preventive healthcare services.

This conference is a networking and partnership development opportunity for multiple sectors: advocates, business and private sector, agencies, practitioners, planners, researchers and community-based groups.
