The focus on the intersection between transportation and public health is increasingly important as communities plan for recovery and response amid COVID-19 and tackle more persistent health and safety issues. Emerging research to better align the two fields offers not only an expanded perspective of their connections, but also opportunities to address health issues through the lens of transportation. The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC), in partnership with many organizations, is delivering a webinar series aimed at exploring the integration of health in various transportation planning practices. Through a five-episode series running from October 13 to October 28, PBIC and its partners will share practices for advancing health and equity in transportation through the confrontation of power and privilege in communities, collaborative partnerships, data integration, project prioritization, and policy change. Panelists will draw from A Research Roadmap for Transportation and Public Health (National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Research Report 932)<http://pedbikeinfo.org/resources/resources_details.cfm?id=5213>, which synthesizes existing practice and research and proposes a plan to fund further exploration of this critical connection between transportation and health.

We just published a new book on Traffic-Related Air Pollution and Human Health available through: https://lnkd.in/gYdeeyz
This was a collaboration between the Center for Advancing Research in Transportation Emissions, Energy and Health (CARTEEH) -https://www.carteeh.org/ at TTI, and the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal). The book is meant to cover the theory, methods and tools for assessing and quantifying road traffic emissions, air pollution, exposure, and health impacts.
