Community Toolkits and Metrics for Equitable Access to Nature

As more and more communities develop efforts to advance nature as a social determinant of health, toolkits and metrics for successful implementation are increasingly important and helpful, especially as we want to help ensure equitable engagement strategies and access for all community members. This workshop will look at guidelines that have been developed to assist communities in successful “nature as medicine” roll-outs, strategies, and evaluation of outcomes.
