The integration of health in transportation continues to increase. Transportation agencies are looking for ways to better understand the needed to integrate health in transportation decisions. While much of this tactical work is beginning to unfold at the grassroots level, institutional frameworks need to be forged at the highest levels. Only when all these activities come together will we be able to develop sustaining and resilient communities promoting Population Health and Transportation.



The integration of health in transportation continues to increase across the United States, and the importance of public health considerations in transportation planning is gaining in acceptance. As awareness of the health impacts of transportation grows, transportation agencies are looking for ways to better understand the connections and tools needed to integrate health in transportation decisions. While much of this tactical work is beginning to unfold at the grassroots level, institutional frameworks that are strategically focused need to be forged and developed at the highest levels. Only when all these activities come together will we be able to develop sustaining communities promoting Public/Population Health and Transportation.

 

In 2014 there was a panel session with several state DOT CEOs and health officials regarding public/population health and transportation. It was clear at that time that this was only the beginning of the discussion and a lot of ground needed to be covered. This session will continue the dialogue by bringing together a different set of leaders across a variety of agencies to discuss how they are fostering their “new” approach to strategic collaboration.

 

Following opening remarks and moderated questions there will be an opportunity for audience questions.
