What Health Impact Assessments Can Do for Health Inequalities
Wed, Aug 22, 2012, 2:00 - 3:00 pm EDT

Meeting Description
APHA will host a free webinar series on critical health and equity issues within the transportation sector. These three, 60-minute APHA webinars will explore the ties between public health and:

  • Increased use of public transportation;
  • Reduced injuries, particularly for children and young drivers;
  • Increased access to goods and services, such as healthy foods, jobs, employment and health care, for all communities; and
  • Other topics, such as updates on the federal surface transportation authorization.
The health impact assessment (HIA) is gaining huge momentum as a tool to address the social and environmental determinants of health, particularly on transportation-related projects and policies. Learn about HIAs conducted on transportation corridors with high rates of poverty and unemployment, on new public transportation line and on a city’s master plan. Presentations by Karen Nikolai, MCP, MPH, and Crystal Myslajek, MPP, Hennepin County; and Alyssa Auvinen, RiverStone Health.
