The Case for Healthy Places is a free report of peer-reviewed research on healthy placemaking initiatives that offers evidence-based guidance, recommendations, and case studies for health institutions, community organizations, and other partners. 

Produced with generous support from Kaiser Permanente and Anne T. and Robert Bass, this important study focuses on five key areas: 

  • Social Support & Interaction
  • Play & Active Recreation
  • Green & Natural Environments
  • Healthy Food
  • Walking & Biking

The final chapter addresses health care institutions, detailing ways in which they can take action to become placemaking champions in the communities they serve.

Supplementary materials are also available that include key findings and recommendations from the report, as well as a brief introduction to placemaking:
