Lee Kornegay Intermediate School Playground HIA

PLAN*et worked with the Arizona State Department of Health to conduct a Health Impact Assessment (HAI) of the proposed new playground adjacent to Lee Kornegay Intermediate School in Miami, Arizona. The HIA resulted in the school changing its program for playground equipment, increased awareness about the health benefits of the playground, and new partnerships between the School District and the Town of Miami. Work included development of a web page to solicit community input, facilitation of stakeholder meetings, analysis of school health data, and other health data provided by stakeholders and online, and development of the HIA report.
