Tacoma, Wash. – What makes a strong community? What about a healthy community? And what the heck is a Blue Zone? Communities are influenced by the built environment around them, with things like road design and access to green spaces impacting everything from health outcomes to job opportunities. Join Downtown On the Go for a panel exploring how communities come together to tackle issues and build resilience through organizing and connection.
This free Friday Forum panel event will be held on January 26th from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in person at the University of Washington Tacoma in Milgard Hall Room 110, and virtually over Zoom. Featuring panelists Tono Sablan (Parkland-Spanaway Blue Zones), Naomi Wilson (Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department), Lowell Wyse (Tacoma Tree Foundation). Moderated by Tanisha Jumper (Tacoma Public Schools).
