Plan4Health: Puyallup Watershed
Listen to interviews with Plan4Health coalition members who focused on increasing healthy living aspects like active transportation and access to nutritious foods in their communities. This episode features the Active Transportation Community of Interest (AT COI), which seeks to increase access to safe, healthy, and affordable active transportation options for people living in the Puyallup Watershed in Pierce County, Washington.
Through an overarching collaborative strategy that brought American Planning Association (APA) members together with members of the American Public Health Association (APHA), the Plan4Health initiative addressed health goals using planning strategies. Coalitions made up of APA chapters, APHA affiliate groups, and others worked to set a new paradigm for healthy planning and solve tough problems by leveraging complementary expertise and influence.
