Health Impact Assessment

9:00 AM - 12:15 PM
January 1, 1970


(Double Session) Health Impact Assessment (HIA) can be used to evaluate a proposed plan or project’s potential effects on the health of a population. HIA provides evidence-based recommendations aimed at enhancing positive health impacts and minimizing negative ones. In this session, the New Jersey Health Impact Collaborative (NJHIC) will lead a training on health impact assessment as a tool to promote community health and equity in planning processes and decision-making. Workshop participants will engage in group exercises related to HIA steps, discuss opportunities and challenges to integrating health into planning processes, and learn about new statewide collaborative initiatives and emerging tools to build capacity for health advancement in planning, and to support health in all policies.
