Want to learn how you can leverage data from the Environmental Public Health Tracking Network for health impact assessments (HIA)? Then join us for a co-presentation by the Minnesota Department of Health’s Environmental Public Health Tracking and Climate & Health Programs describing their successful use of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) data in Health Impact Assessments. Speakers will discuss opportunities for intersection between HIA and tracking data and will also provide participants with a national perspective on the uses of health impact assessments and the Tracking Network.  
 
This is the second in a three-part series of Environmental Public Health Tracking Program webinars co-sponsored by the American Public Health Association, the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials and the National Association of County and City Health Officials.
