2014 marked the 50th anniversary of the Public Health Institute. throughout the year, we shared the accomplishments of the field of public health, and of PHI programs and projects. 


What does it take to build healthy communities? All of us, say the APHA's Georges Benjamin, RWJF's Susan Dentzer, Dr. Kimberlydawn Wisdom and others:


PHI has long recognized that our health is largely determined by the quality of our housing, the availability nearby of grocery stores well stocked with fresh produce and of places to be physically active, our air quality, and the safety of our streets and sidewalks. Nearly all of PHI’s work over the years can be viewed through the lens of improving the health of communities to prevent chronic disease and create a culture of health.
