An In-Depth Look at Safe Routes to School

November 7, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

On November 7, join John Auerbach from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for a webinar on Safe Routes to School as a community-wide intervention with a 5-year impact. This webinar is part of the CDC’s new Health Impact in 5 Years (HI-5) initiative. This is an excellent opportunity for advocates to learn how to pitch Safe Routes to School to health partners. The HI-5 (high-five) initiative highlights a list of non-clinical, community-wide approaches with a proven track record. Each intervention listed is associated with improved health within five years and is reported to be cost-effective or cost-saving over the lifetime of the population or even earlier. Public and private organizations can use this list to quickly assess the scientific evidence for short-term health outcomes and overall cost impacts of community-wide approaches. This webinar will provide stakeholders with the opportunity to hear real-world examples of how local and state-level organizations have implemented Safe Routes to School to meet needs of their communities.
