"Place Matters" Mapping Project Proves Location Impacts Health
Watch this short video for an overview of CHE's Place Matters Community Mapping Project and an introduction to our interactive, online maps. For access to the online maps, click on the Place Matters tab in the navigation bar above.
At its 2015 Annual Meeting, CHE released the findings from “Place Matters”, a community mapping project that illustrates how your health is affected by where you live. The maps also showed that life expectancy in Lincoln can vary by nearly three decades from neighborhood to neighborhood. David J. Erickson, PhD., Director of Center for Community Development Investments at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco delivered the keynote speech, “Health Happens in Neighborhoods.” The video of the Annual Meeting is available in its entirety on the 10HealthTV YouTube channel.

Focused on that vision, we foster innovation, creativity, strong partnerships and the exchange of ideas.
