All webinars also will be archived on APHA's website for later viewing.

Meeting Description:

APHA will host a free webinar series on critical health and equity issues within the transportation sector. These three, 60-minute APHA webinars will explore the ties between public health and:

  • Increased use of public transportation;
  • Reduced injuries, particularly for children and young drivers;
  • Increased access to goods and services, such as healthy foods, jobs, employment and health care, for all communities; and
  • Other topics, such as updates on the federal surface transportation authorization.

We invite professionals in public health, transportation and other related sectors to participate in our 2012 webinar series.
