How does the transportation system impact your health?
PSRC is hosting a special presentation on elevating health considerations in regional transportation planning on November 6 from 1 to 5 pm at 1011 Western Avenue, Suite 500 in Seattle.
Basic activity levels, air quality and safety are just a few of the ways the transportation system can affect public health. This event is designed to inform regional planners and community leaders about the ways we can improve public health with transportation planning.
Speakers will include: Jeffery Tumlin from Nelson Nygaard (co-author of the NACTO design guidelines) on why health matters and simple steps cities and MPOs can take to improve public health outcomes; David Vautin from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) on a case study from the San Francisco Bay Area on public health and transportation planning.
The event will also include a panel featuring: Dr. Ngozi Oleru, Director of the Environmental Health Division for Public Health Seattle & King County; Hillary Franz, Executive Director of Futurewise; Rich Stolz, Executive Director of OneAmerica.
