Public health practitioners are becoming increasingly aware the need to become very familiar with land use and transportation practices. While indepth knowledge is not essential,working with built environment professionals means learning new concepts and practices in order to establish and maintain productive working relationships.
The University of Southern California's School of Policy, Planning, and Development sponsored a series of lectures on a number of nuts & bolts topics that are good starting points for public health practitioners to learn built environment basics. The YouTube video below features a leading land use attorney and planner-Robert Freilich, JD, PhD.

He is one of the nation's leading experts in real estate and land use law, is at the forefront of sustainable growth management planning, new urbanism, regional transportation, renewable energy and green development systems. A highly respected litigator, Dr. Freilich has tried and argued more than 160 cases throughout the country, including several before the U.S. Supreme Court.
