Healthy Transportation Initiative

What: The Public Health Alliance's cross-sector Healthy Transportation Initiative integrates health into transportation decision-making and prioritization of investments. The initiative provides a stimulating and cutting edge forum to build capacity and to develop and communicate a collective, unified public health voice. A collective public health approach provides clarity, strength and efficiency to engage in critical policies and decision-making.

When: First Wednesday of the month, 9-10AM PST.
