Meeting Description:

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.

This webinar was funded through cooperative agreement U38OT000131 between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Public Health Association. The contents of this webinar are solely the responsibility of the presenters and do not necessarily represent the official views of the American Public Health Association or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
