Dear H+T friends,
The Health and Transportation Subcommittee of the Transportation Research Board in
cooperation with the Traveler Behavior and Values Committee seeks research papers
enhancing the use of transportation and land use modelling tools in examining health
outcomes. We welcome both development of theoretical frameworks and innovative use of
theory in practical applications to improve our knowledge.
Examples of research questions in the context of this call may include but are not limited
* How do the models, methods or tools help bridge the gap between health and
* How do transportation networks (local, regional, and global) affect disease
* What role does transportation play in enabling access to health care and medical
facilities, and are there any systematic inequalities?
Please check the attached 'HealthPaperCall' for more detailed information on
potential research questions. The call is also posted on the H&T Subcommittee website:
Papers for publication and/or presentation must be submitted by August 1, 2015. Submission
of complete papers, conforming to TRB standards and format, is required for consideration.
Papers may be submitted for presentation only. Each paper will be peer-reviewed according
to TRB procedures. TRB paper specifications and submittal information can be found online
When submitting your paper, please make sure to complete the section on the form that
identifies that the paper is in response to a "Call for Papers". Check the ADB10
