Webinar: Passing a Health in All Policies Ordinance in the City of Appleton

Start date: April 4, 2018

Watch webinar recording here.


The City of Appleton is a Green Tier Legacy Community and is a participant of the previously featured Legacy Community Alliance for Health initiative (LCAH). LCAH is a dynamic collaboration of Wisconsin local governments, state agencies, academic partners, and nonprofit groups have joined forces to create the Legacy Community Alliance for Health (LCAH). The collaborative has been awarded a $1 million Community Impact Grant to improve health and health equity through local government policymaking and programming. This project builds on the work of Green Tier Legacy Communities* and Green Tier non-government organizations, led by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and 1000 Friends of Wisconsin. Academic partners under the umbrella of the UW-Madison UniverCity Alliance, led by COWS and the Population Health Institute, will provide data, training, technical assistance and evaluation services (see sidebar for a full list of partners). This presentation will give an updated on the project and spotlight the work that the City of Appleton did to pass a Health in All Policies Ordinance at the city level.
