Who We Are

Healthy Places by Design advances community-led action and proven, place-based strategies to ensure health and wellbeing for all.

We are strategic partners for communities and those who invest in them, helping turn visions of health equity into lasting impact. At local, state, and national scales, we connect community leaders with inspiring success stories, lessons learned, and each other to deepen their capacity as changemakers. Drawing on our experience supporting hundreds of community partnerships, we strengthen assets and enhance efforts to grow an enduring culture of health and wellbeing.

Our Vision

A nation of healthy, equitable communities where everyone reaches their full potential.

We believe that health and wellbeing are essential human rights. We seek to create impact where it is most needed, respecting and honoring the voices of people who face the starkest health disparities and whose stories too often go unheard.
