Standing Committee on Transportation and Public Health (AME70)

Shifts in transportation during COVID-19 have broad-reaching health impacts including access to essential goods and services; changes in transportation demand, behavior and safety; the spread of infectious disease and variations in air pollution. These impacts are particularly prominent for under-served and under-resourced communities as they disproportionately experience adverse health outcomes related to transportation access and exposures. This session will provide a transportation and health overview with short presentations on topics such as access, equity, active transportation, injury, pollution and infectious disease. The session will conclude with a panel discussion and audience input on transportation equity .
