Public Health in Public Housing: Improving Health, Changing Lives

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), DHHS, hosted the Education Strategy Development Workshop: Public Health in Public Housing - Improving Health, Changing Lives on May 5 and 6, 2004. The purpose of the Workshop was to have both public health and public housing professionals share intervention strategies they have found to be successful in engaging public housing residents in community-based activities for health and community development. The Workshop focused on ways to control asthma and improve the cardiovascular health of residents in public housing settings. The outcome of the workshop was the development of four innovative public health in public housing frameworks to inform future public health CVD and asthma programming efforts in public housing settings.
