Hello, all, I am one of the steering committee members for TRB H+T. In a recent meeting, we discussed expanding our knowledge in the field by learning more about work that may be happening related to transportation and health care access, such as FTA's Rides to Wellness initiative<https://www.transportation.gov/fastlane/ride-to-wellness>.

Are any of you working on this issue and interested in telling us about it?
