Plan4Health’s Peer Learning Network connects planners and public health professionals creating change in their communities.

You know your communities best – and Plan4Health is committed to elevating and to amplifying the expertise of Plan4Heath coalitions by showcasing your work and the work of your peers.

The Peer Learning Network (PLN) is open to organizational partners, community leaders, professional allies and anyone passionate about creating vibrant, healthy places!

Check out the PLN below – and consider sharing your knowledge to help the PLN grow beyond the Plan4Health project.

We would love for you to share your thoughts and experiences in planning and public health here! Tell us about your favorite resource, a challenge you are facing, or a success story – or tell us why planning and public health are important to you and how you convey this message to your community.

Connect with others to participate in an active, ongoing dialogue and contribute lessons learned from your own work in planning and public health.
