Healthy Environments Across Generations conference

This week! Healthy Environments Across Generations conference

June 7 – 8, 2012
New York Academy of Medicine
New York City, NY

Addressing the environmental health aspects of how we live, eat, work, play, and socialize throughout life, and how we can transform our environments to promote health and prevent disease.

Please join us for a participatory conference that will bring together leaders and innovators from multiple sectors to:

  • Catalyze innovative approaches towards a systems-based approach to health across the lifespan;
  • Identify key intervention points and crosscutting environmental solutions to help reverse rising disease trajectories;
  • Develop intergenerational programmatic and policy recommendations/models that reflect an integrated approach to wellness; and
  • Create an ongoing network for collaboration to build healthier communities for all.

This conference is not an end unto itself, but a stepping stone for building a health-focused, multi-generational movement. We invite you to bring your energy and ideas to New York to help create our collective future.

Relevant to professionals and others working in or interested in the areas of health, food, nutrition, built environment, natural resources, environmental and economic justice, aging, or anyone interested in promoting health and preventing disease at all life stages.
