It’ a Two-way Street: Public Health and Transportation Intersect
Presented by: Transportation for America - James Corless
America’s transportation system — the network of highways, railroads, public transportation, walkways and bikeways — serves as the backbone of our economy, connects our communities and provides access to the American Dream of opportunity for all. But today it is both incomplete and threatened.
This National Society for Physical Activity Practitioners in Public Health webinar will share (1) the connection between public health and transportation, (2) the status of the federal transportation bill, (3) how physical activity practitioners can support a comprehensive transportation bill (through education and advocacy), and (4) how the public health community can more effectively communicate and work with transportation agencies to create healthier more connected communities—at the state and local levels.
