March 31, 2017
5:30pm - 7:30pm

Presented by Wagner Policy Alliance (WPA).

We invite panelists to discuss how urban planning and design, policies, and management play a role in the health and well-being of city residents. From public space, to bike lanes, to quality healthcare, this panel will explore what it takes to implement initiatives, how each facet plays a role, and what more can be done. Join us for a discussion on how we as management, policy, health, and planning students can use existing resources and pave new avenues to create healthy cities.

Michael Schnall, Vice President of Community Engagement Initiatives at New York Road Runners;

Adrian Benepe, Former NYC Parks Commissioner and SVP of city park development for The Trust for Public Land;

Dr. Jordan Metzl, Orthopedic Physician at Hospital for Special Surgery, best selling author, and fitness instructor;
