      Subject: Public Briefing: Improving Health in the United States: The
      Role of Health Impact Assessment

      You’re invited to a public briefing on the report: Improving Health in
      the United States: The Role of Health Impact Assessment.

      Join several members of the authoring committee at The California
      Endowment, in Los Angeles and Oakland, to discuss the findings of the
      report: Improving Health in the United States: The Role of Health
      Impact Assessment. This new report from the National Research Council,
      offers guidance to officials in the public and private sectors on
      conducting HIAs to evaluate public health consequences of proposed
      decisions -- such as those to build a major roadway, plan a city's
      growth, or develop national agricultural policies -- and suggests
      actions that could minimize adverse health impacts and optimize
      beneficial ones.

      The speakers will discuss the findings of the report and look at
      examples of projects in California that have incorporated HIAs. The
      two locations will be connected via videoconference.
