Project(s): LA County Dept of Public Health _ Urban Heat Island and Climate Initiatives
Emily Audet grew up in Woodstock, Conneticut and first came to California to attend Scripps College, where she studied Environment, Economics, and Politics. During her time at Scripps, she grew interested in the relationship between the built environment and public health. Emily is passionate about using urban planning to design healthy, equitable communities and is excited to put this passion into practice through her work for the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. During the Fellowship, Emily hopes to learn more about healthy community design and how climate action is formed at the local level in California, as well as to aid in improving public health in Los Angeles County.
