Connecting with Health Professionals on Bicycle and Pedestrian Issues

12/16/2009 – 12/16/2009

Web-based, USA

Join APBP on Wednesday, December 16, at 3:00 p.m. EST to study a fruitful local collaboration between public health and active transportation. This policy-oriented webinar will demonstrate the connections between an active living partnership and bicycling/walking policies and programs. Presenters will discuss a case study from Hennepin County, Minnesota, in which technical assistance provided by an umbrella group through support from Blue Cross/Blue Shield (workshops on Complete Streets and Winter Walking) helped gather diverse constituencies to catalyze pedestrian and bicycle policies and planning.

Webinar participants will learn:

  • How to understand and articulate the synergies between nonmotorized transportation planning and public health
  • How governments, businesses and community partners can connect to develop partnerships to carry out this work
  • How to create and successfully shepherd policies through approval by elected bodies
