Summary

Atlanta, GA

May 19-22, 2010

As new urbanist planning and development leaders go mainstream with proven strategies for making communities more livable, more energy efficient and better positioned for economic success, top health officials are promoting these same strategies as ways to make places healthier. CNU 18 brought these experts together to work on making the "prescription" for healthy, walkable, vital communities an integral part of government policy, community planning and development industry practice.

Building on its leadership in promoting healthy communities, CDC assisted in the planning of the Congress. Dr. Howard Frumkin, Director of CDC's National Center for Environmental Health and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, is honorary chair of the 18th Congress. The event's executive chair is Ellen Dunham-Jones, CNU board member, Associate Professor of Architecture at Georgia Tech and expert in Retrofitting Suburbia, a fast-emerging trend that is redefining what's possible in the redevelopment of sprawling places.
