The December 2016 issue of the Delaware Journal of Public Health includes a special feature about the Delaware Plan4Health project – When Planning Meets Health: Delaware’s Plan4Health Grant Fosters a Healthy Delaware.

How do we integrate health in land use and community planning? The Delaware Plan4Health coalition seeks to answer this question by creating a model to address health and equity through planning. By leveraging the timing of  comprehensive plan updates, the coalition is able to integrate health and equity into the comprehensive plan and thus improve opportunities for healthy eating and active living through the built environment.
