Health and the Built Environment

About Us

The Health and the Built Environment Committee of the Consortium for a Healthier Miami-Dade was established in order to educate the community, public and, private stakeholders about the health impacts of the built environment, develop strategies and influence solutions.


  1. To increase awareness of the relationship between the built environment and the community’s health.
  2. To support policies that promote incidental physical activity and access to healthful foods.
  3. To foster collaborations between organizations and act as a catalyst for an environment that supports a healthier Miami-Dade County.
