Who We Are

The Design for Health  (DFH) web site is not being updated starting in 2015.

The DFH web site features a number of different kinds of materials:

  • Many core resources were created during 2006 to 2008 when the project was providing technical assistance on comprehensive planning.
  • From 2008 to 2010 the group did a number of trainings and conference presentations, particularly on Health Impact Assessment.
  • The DFH blog started in 2010 and the image collection in 2011.

The project team for the phases to 2010 included:
