MSRED faculty Jonathan Leit was interviewed by Urban Land Magazine on the use of Health Impact Assessments (HIA), and how developers can benefit from understanding and engaging in HIAs to build better communities.

A HIA is a six-step evidence-based process that engages stakeholders to determine how projects can affect community and individual health. Its goal is to identify strategies for the project to maximize its community benefits and minimize adverse effects.

In the article, Jonathan Leit, describes how his company used the Health Impact Assessment (HIA) as an opportunity to continue to built support for their project, the Myrtle Banks Redevelopment. The building will include a food market in an area currently lacking access t fresh and healthy food options.
