Urban Forests for Human Health and Wellness
Wednesday, September 10, 2014 | 1:00 – 2:00pm ET
People have described the healing power of nature for centuries. This webinar will present current research and best practices showing how outdoor spaces support public health and wellness. Such information can help nature planners and managers engage their community leaders in greening programs, and encourage municipal investments in nearby nature settings to improve human health and well-being. Kathleen Wolf will introduce the latest discourse on human habitat and health, and review health findings that may be of economic value in communities. Teresia Hazen will describe the evidence base for gardens and nature in patient care services, research in process at the Legacy Health hospitals in Portland, Oregon, and practical and successful examples of garden design and programming to support rehabilitation, recovery, and restoration for hospital patients, visitors, and employees.
