Health


You'll like this goal
for NPHW: "Walking and biking must coexist with cars and public transportation." Empower your work by embracing public health colleagues in your locale.
The stars align! National Public Health Week happens during National Poetry Month. APBP longs for a poem (or possibly a Haiku) about how your work advances public health. Send i there.
APBP's endorsement appears on the April 2016 American City Quality Month poster; download ithere.

Active Street
News
Useful Reports:

"Active Transportation and Real Estate: The Next Frontier" March 2016 Urban Land Institute (mostly bike-focused).

"At the Intersection of Action Transportation and Equity" by the Safe Routes to School National Partnership.

Another performance measure: Tap into the USDOT CDC Transportation and Health Tool (THT) for state and metro area data on the health impacts of transportation systems. THT also offers strategies to improve public health through transportation planning and policy.
