RegisterIncorporating health in transportation decisions
Thursday, August 24
1 – 2 p.m. EDT

APHA believes in working with the transportation sector to create equitable and healthy transportation policies and practices. Since its release in 2015, the Transportation and Health Tool has been an online resource for public health and transportation professionals alike. Using this important tool, practitioners can learn how their states and metropolitan regions stack up against their peers in terms of key health and transportation indicators. In this webinar, you’ll hear transportation professionals promoting initiatives and efforts to integrate health considerations into their transportation decisions and policies. And they’ll tell you how they used the Transportation and Health Tool to do it.


  • Ann Gravatt, Planning Supervisor, Transportation Alternatives, Byways, Federal Land Access Programs Statewide and Regional Planning, Delaware Department of Transportation
  • Melissa A. Kraemer Badtke, Principal Planner/Safe Routes to School Coordinator, East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission
  • Elizabeth Whitton, Transportation Planner, MetroPlan Orlando


Check out our newly released case studies outlining how five departments of transportation and metropolitan planning organizations are using the Transportation and Health Tool in their work. 

Recordings of APHA webinars will be made available after the live event. Register for the webinar to receive notifications.
