Incorporating Health in Transportation Decisions

Webinar //


Aug 24 2017, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST


APHA believes in working with the transportation sector to create equitable and healthy transportation policies and practices. Since its release in 2015, the Transportation and Health Tool has been an online resource for public health and transportation professionals alike. Using this important tool, practitioners can learn how their states and metropolitan regions stack up against their peers in terms of key health and transportation indicators. In this webinar, you’ll hear transportation professionals promoting initiatives and efforts to integrate health considerations into their transportation decisions and policies. And they’ll tell you how they used the Transportation and Health Tool to do it.
