PHAdvocates' HEAL Director Charlotte Dickson receives award

Last week at the League of California Cities’ 118th Annual Conference & Expo, Public Health Advocates’ Charlotte Dickson was honored for her role in founding the HEAL Cities Campaign, an important effort that has led 185 cities throughout California to adopt policies and practices that will ensure healthy outcomes for California children and families.

These 185 cities, representing a combined 14 million residents, have joined the campaign, pledging to build more bike lanes and sidewalks, create complete streets, bring farmers markets into under-served areas, start worksite wellness programs and include health policies and goals into General Plan updates.
