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