Warner, Heath co-author book chapter on Fox Valley Regional LIFE Study

Assistant Prof. Lora Warner of Public and Environmental Affairs and staff research associate Ashley Heath of the Center for Public Affairs are co-authors of a chapter describing the Fox River Regional LIFE Study. (LIFE stands for Leading Indicators For Excellence.) Results from the four-county, year-and-a-half long study were rolled out last October, offering an analysis of how local communities relate to key quality-of-life indicators. The chapter by Warner and Heath, titled “The Fox River Region Leading Indicators for Excellence: The Benefits and Challenges of Regional Collaboration,” appears in a book titled Community QOL Indicators: Best Cases VI. Edited by scholars from Virginia Tech, Arizona State and the College of William and Mary, the book is published by Springer Books, with information and previews available – click here.
