Health Impact Assessment (HIA) can be used to evaluate a proposed plan or project’s potential effects on the health of a population. HIA provides evidence-based recommendations aimed at enhancing positive health impacts and minimizing negative ones. In this session, the New Jersey Health Impact Collaborative (NJHIC) will lead an introductory training on health impact assessment as a tool to promote community health and equity in planning processes and decision-making. Participants will engage in group exercises related to HIA steps, discuss opportunities and challenges to integrating health into planning and policy processes, and learn about new statewide collaborative initiatives and emerging tools to build capacity for health advancement in planning, and to support health in all policies. 

Learning Objectives: 
• Understand the broader context of health influences and the social determinants of health. 
• Understand the principles, value, and use of HIA, as well as the steps involved in conducting an HIA. 
• Understand applicability of HIA to planning, development and land use decision-making and processes. 
• Explore opportunities to incorporate HIA and/or health in all policies in local government decision-making. 
• Review the resources available to local government decision-makers and citizens that wish to include health consideration in community planning.

LSRPA Board Member Caryn Barnes honored as recipient of SWEP's 2015 award at June 24, 2015 SWEP Gala
Monday, July 13, 2015 08:14 PM

Caryn Barnes, LSRP and LSRPA Board Member, Principal and Leader of the environmental team in Langan’s center city Philadelphia office, was recently honored with the prestigious “Growing Great Women in the Garden State” award at the 9th annual New Jersey Society of Women Environmental Professionals Gala (NJSWEP) at the Wine Room of Cherry Hill, NJ.

Each year this award is given to one woman who is admired for her commitment to the field of environmental protection, conservation, and research; her contributions to communicating and sharing knowledge; her dedication to mentoring the next generation of environmental leaders; and her innovative approach to science and/or policy. Caryn exemplifies these tenets as demonstrated by her extensive involvement with the LSRP Association and participation in several NJDEP regulatory stakeholder groups, her fostering the love of environmental sciences in the next generation and her willingness to mentor and build lasting relationships with tomorrow’s leaders.

At the Gala there was an overwhelming turnout of support for Caryn by a diverse group of SWEP members (some of whom are LSRPA members, like SWEP Co-Chair Elizabeth Limbrick, and some are LSRPA Sponsors, like Riker Danzig, the law firm of SWEP Co-Chair Jillian Mooney), industry peers. LSRPA Board and Steering Committee members  and Langan colleagues.  The evening was a true validation of Caryn’s ability to leave an indelible mark on the people and activities in which she engages. From the glowing introductions she received, to fact that, for the first time in history, attendance for the Gala sold out,  the event was a true testament to the respect and recognition that Caryn has garnered over the years.
