Studies show that our homes and neighborhoods play a large role in public health, especially for an aging population. Walkable, safe, and connected communities promote exercise, access to healthy food options, and an active social life. Panelists discuss how planning, design, and community engagement help create livable communities for older adults and everyone. This program complements the exhibition House & Home.
