Event Details

October 14 - 16, 2020



The event will convene industry leaders around the advancement of nature as a social determinant of health—an invaluable addition to the movement to protect the natural world.

As defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, social determinants of health are conditions in the places where people live, learn, work, and play that affect a wide range of health risks and outcomes. They are increasingly recognized by government, agencies and public health officials as invaluable factors in overall health outcomes.

Nature as a social determinant of health is scientifically supported by leading researchers, healthcare executives, physicians, land managers and conservation advocates. Join us for a working conference that promotes the public health benefits of outdoor recreation with business models, methodologies and strategies.

Over the course of three days, stakeholders from complementary sectors will participate in intimate workshops and think tanks that advance the health benefits of nature in mainstream society.

Public health is the last frontier of ecosystem services. This October, don’t miss this singular opportunity to join the innovators, early adopters and thought leaders at the forefront of the “Nature as Medicine” movement as we use the public health benefits of nature to strengthen the argument for nature itself.



While we may individually agree (or disagree) in whole or in part with any or all of the participants, the views expressed in these webinars are not necessarily representative of the views of American Trails as an organization or its board and staff.
