The Road to Health: Improving Community Wellbeing Through Transportation

CPEHN invites you to our spring convening, The Road to Health: Improving Community Wellbeing Through Transportation. This workshop will focus on the impact of transportation on our health, and advocacy efforts underway in California to ensure cleaner air, safer streets, and accessible services. Featuring presentations from TransForm, a leading transportation advocacy organization, and local advocates, this convening series promises to provide stimulating discussion on how to create sustainable, healthy, and active communities through planning decisions.

Participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of the impact of transportation on health
  • Engage with community members working on safe routes to school, access to public transportation, and other important issues
  • Strategize on local, statewide, and federal advocacy efforts to influence transportation planning policies
