    Health Impact Assessment (HIA)-Stories from California Counties

    Aug 04, 2016 at 2 pm ET

    Whether you are new to HIA, trying to integrate HIA practice into your work, or a more seasoned practitioner, this webinar will provide insights into HIA practice at the local level.

    There are aspects of HIA practice that can be challenging-convincing key partners that it will add value, engaging stakeholders and community members in a meaningful way, and integrating HIA as a regular practice within an organization. Panelists will share their experiences addressing these challenges in three California counties:

    Brett Storey, Environmental Utilities, Placer County

    Tammy Lee, Alameda County Public Health Department

    Lauren Gase, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health

    This webinar is brought to you by Sequoia Foundation and the California Department of Public Health. This webinar is supported by a grant from the Health Impact Project, a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts, with funding from The California Endowment.

    The views expressed are those of the organizers and presenters and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Health Impact Project, The Pew Charitable Trusts, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, or The California Endowment.
