Health in All Policies

Drs. Robert Vanderslice and Marcella Thompson from Brown University Superfund Research Program Community Engagement Core presented “Health in All Policies” to Rhode Island’s Statewide Planning Technical Advisory Committee on December 6, 2013. The two brief presentations highlighted a recent whitepaper on the subject and provided information on conducting health impact assessments. This presentation was part of an ongoing effort to build capacity for conducting Health Impact Assessments (HIAs) in Rhode Island, and seeking opportunities to integrate HIA into the state’s sustainable strategic planning process and environmental policy formulation.
