Health Impact Assessment Practitioners Summer Training Course

San Francisco Department of Public Health’s 6th Annual HIA training is right around the corner. After having nearly 200 people complete their intensive summer short course, one of the priorities they maintain is a commitment to training community-based and grassroots organizations who have an interest in and capacity for substantive application of health impact assessment in their work. Some community-based organizations may be well-positioned to combine their existing work with health impact assessment. The work of ISAIAH in Minnesota and LA CAN in California are fine examples of how CBOs have leveraged HIA.

The community-based organization rate is $200 for 4 full days of instruction in Oakland (CA), breakfast and lunch, and all materials. There is limit the number of participants from each organization to 2 persons.To ensure a best fit between the material being presented and the applicant, SFDPH requests applicants to fill out the on-line form here:
