The Health Benefits from Active Transportation
2-3 pm EST

Transportation decisions affect our individual lives, economy and health. All communities use highways, streets, sidewalks and trails to get to work or school, to get medical care, to access healthy foods and recreation and to participate in countless other activities every day. However, many communities are negatively impacted by transportation decisions that are detrimental to health.

Through a diversity of expert speakers, this innovative, FREE, four-part webinar series by the American Public Health Association (APHA) explores the intersections between health and transportation, and highlights state and local programs that leverage opportunities in transportation that benefit health, and explains what the future may hold for the federal surface transportation authorization.
