In early 2017, the Florida Chapter of the American Planning Association began a project that would bring public health professionals and land use planners together. The result was the creation of a web-based platform to assist professionals with backgrounds in multidisciplinary social sciences in cross-collaborating and fostering interaction with each other. With the rise of the current pandemic, bridging the gap between planning and public health has never been more important.
