Dear Friends and Colleagues:
We are proud to offer your organization a wonderful opportunity to sponsor our third annual Healthy Community by Design Summit. The Summit provides a forum to promote the discussion on the effects of the built environment on human health. On October 1 - 2, 2012 the Linda University campus will open its doors to leaders, professionals and the general public.
The Healthy Communities by Design Summit serves as the premier summit for national and international community collaboration, information exchange, a source of expert speakers on the built environment and Geographic Information System (GIS) technology.
In 2012, the theme of the Summit is Place Matters. Place matters in the desire to better understand and plan for a community when identifying health risks, managing environmental conditions and exposures, providing adequate health promotion programs, identifying special populations lacking access to healthy urban features, and many others. For the following reasons, this Summit creates an environment to discuss the conditions that promote health and wellbeing. For additional information, please visit the webpage: www.llu.edu/public-health/hcbd.
Because of your organization's own commitment to providing leadership that maintains and enhances health promotion, disease and injury prevention as well as health protection efforts in California, we are thrilled to join in partnership with you as we work together to build healthy communities within the Southern California region.
This Summit is organized by the Geoinformatics division of the School of Public Health at Loma Linda University. Lorna Linda University School of Public Health (established in 1968) is centered in the tradition of prevention and community development in addition to the training of top notch public health professionals and leaders.
This event will bring together individuals from academia, government, non-profit, industry, and all others interested in improving human health through the built environment. We will be collaborating with Esri as we focus on the benefits of geospatial technologies to improve our environments.
We expect 250 participants, primarily from the vast and diverse Inland Empire Regions but expect participants from as far as the east coast as we increase our pool of expert speakers. Marketing for the summit will include press releases, ads in the local and regional papers, electronic advertisement, posters, and save-the date cards.
The keynote speaker for the conference is Dr. Richard Jackson, Professor and Chair of the Environmental Health Sciences Department at the University of California, Los Angeles. He will share his perception on the link between human health and the built environment, detail the efforts needed to build healthy and sustainable cities, and offer new insights into the uses of geospatial technologies as a tool for improving human health. Other important presenters will be detailed once they are confirmed.
Your sponsorship will enable us to keep registration fees low enough to be as inclusive as possible. We intend to provide your organization with benefits such as being recognized as an organization invested in improving the built environment, you will receive complimentary admission tickets, be provided a link from our website to yours and many more commensurate with the sponsorship level you choose. For additional information on the benefits associated with each sponsorship level, please refer to the enclosed brochure.
We invite you to complete the response form that can be downloaded from our website and indicate your sponsorship level.
