Thriving Cities: Building a Culture of Health Where We Live, Learn, Work and Play 

Date: Friday, September 9th 

Time: 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm ET/ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm PT

Thriving cities are cities where all residents have the opportunity to reach their full health potential. Thanks to the support of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), the Institute for Youth, Education, and Families (IYEF) at the National League of Cities (NLC) is preparing and leading a national effort to educate, train and build the capacity of city leaders to ensure a good quality of life for all city residents. Join us for an important discussion to learn more about the vision to create health, economic opportunity and well-being where we live, learn, work and play.

On this webinar, you will hear from leaders from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) about the vision for the ‘Culture of Health’ and more details about tools and resources like County Health Rankings and Roadmaps to support this important work. You will also hear from city and public health leaders from Kansas City, Missouri who have worked to achieve RWJF’s Culture of Health prize. Finally, NLC staff will share more details specific to plans to support this work through a future Mayor’s Institute series, web forums, blogs, stakeholder engagement and other technical efforts.

Prior to the web forum, we ask you to watch this Culture of Health Prize Video to learn more about this program:
