Conservation Alabama Foundation is committed to helping communities find effective solutions to their health policy problems. We know that healthy, accessible natural resources support active lifestyles and physical wellbeing, and that environmental factors are often at the root of the health problems facing Alabama's families.
Conservation Alabama Foundation partnered with five Birmingham-area towns to promote smoke-free ordinances that limit exposure to secondhand smoke.
Currently, Conservation Alabama Foundation is working with coalitions through the Gulf States Health Policy Centers in Birmingham and Bayou La Batre. With the input of constituents and stakeholder groups, these coalitions are identifying health policy problems in each community. Both Birmingham and Bayou La Batre are in the early stages of this process, and we will update this site as priority areas are identified.
