Community Planning Through the Eyes of Environmental Health

Wade Sparkman


Promoting public health initiatives integrated with smart growth initiatives has become a priority in the State of Florida.


Environmental Health has taken on the challenge to integrate its profession into making cities livable and is one of the stakeholders who have promoted healthy communities from civilizations infancy.  


Suburban sprawl has become a major issue for Nassau County and proactive strategies through the partnerships of local and state government with community partners will be the deciding factor for successful smart growth. Environmental Health is committed to continue its efforts at the local level to educate and promote healthy livable communities.
