    "On September 21 and 22, 2009, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) convened a group of 20 experts in the field of community design to discuss raising awareness about the health impact of community design decisions. The gathering included top thought leaders whose organizations represent those who play a direct role in creating the built environment through action and policy--developers, architects, planners, builders, academia, public health professionals, and government officials. Its interdisciplinary nature was both unique and intentional. The workshop was conceived as a result of a series of interviews in September and October 2008 that CDC had conducted with professionals in the public health, planning, and built environment sectors. From these interviews, two key themes emerged: A common concern about health exists, but common language among the disciplines is lacking; Almost no cross-discipline synergy on shared health concerns exists, and local public health professionals are not in the loop at the critical early stages of policy and project development." - p. 4
