The Road to Health: Improving Community Wellbeing Through Transportation

The Road to Health: Improving Community Wellbeing Through Transportation

CPEHN’s spring convening, The Road to Health: Improving Community Wellbeing Through Transportation, is right around the corner.

From safe routes to school and accessible public transit, to impacting your regional transportation plan, our convening will provide insight into creating more sustainable, healthy, and active communities. Featuring presentations from TransForm and local advocates, the convening will include:

  • An overview of the impact of transportation on community health
  • Presentations on local advocacy efforts to ensure cleaner air, safer streets, and accessible services
  • Opportunities to advocate on local, statewide, and federal policy efforts to influence transportation policy and planning
