APHA believes in working across sectors to create and foster environments that support physical activity and advance health equity. Physically active people live longer and have a lower risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and some cancers. Building environments that foster physical activity and active, non-motorized transportation helps encourage active lifestyles. This webinar will feature resources and tools public health professionals can use to educate others on the importance of active transportation, including the 2018 Benchmarking Report on Bicycling and Walking in the United States, a study exploring access to trails in Milwaukee and success stories from the Planners4Health initiative. Public health practitioners can learn from and utilize these resources to advocate for active transportation initiatives in their communities Click here to register
