Page Avenue Health Impact Assessment: Building on Diverse Partnerships and Evidence to Promote a Healthy Community

Publication Date



The Page Avenue health impact assessment (HIA) was focused on a redevelopment in Missouri. This case study describes a comprehensive HIA led by an interdisciplinary academic team with community partners, as well as compliance with North American HIA Practice Standards. Some of the key lessons learned included: (1) interdisciplinary teams are valuable but they require flexibility and organization; (2) engaging community stakeholders and decision-makers prior to, during, and following the HIA is critical to a successful HIA; and (3) HIA teams should not be too closely affiliated with decision-makers. It is hoped that this case study will inform future HIAs
