Population level improvements in well-being can be achieved through a wide array of strategies from developing housing and healthy neighborhoods, to community engagement, to the provision of services that improve access to transit and community engagement. These strategies and changes are dynamic and non-linear. Developing measures to assess resulting changes in well-being requires collaborative development of frameworks and metrics that account for a wide spectrum of activities. This panel will offer substantive discussion of three participatory approaches used to develop measures to evaluate changes in well-being at the intersection of community development and health. Each panelist will highlight their experience selecting metrics with key stakeholders, including key decisions involved in how the measures were selected and shaped. The panel will include Success Measures, The Conservation Law Foundation, and Stewards for Affordable Housing for the Future. Taken together, these indicators provide a set of metrics that offer a holistic measure of the impact of changes in place on population health and provide important insights into how we invest in and build healthy places.
