Working with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Division of Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention, Prevention Institute developed five profiles that highlight the importance of community partnerships to advance prevention strategies focused on making Los Angeles a healthier, safer, and more equitable place to live. Through a collaborative partnership with public health, health practitioners, community members, elected officials and many others, the department generated momentum for improvements to the places Angelenos live, learn, work, and play. The profiles lift up key strategies, policies and practices that promote health across Los Angeles communities–highlighting how communities can work together to promote access to healthier foods and beverages, and safer places for people to walk, bike and exercise.
The profiles were made possible with support and guidance from:
- Raimi + Associates
- City of Los Angeles
- Los Angeles Food Policy Council
- Routes to School National Partnership
- Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition
- Los Angeles County Breastfeeding Coalition
