Using Data to Advance Walkability (1:00pm-5:00pm)

Wednesday, September 13

We know the environments around us matter and that the places we live, work, learn and play have a large impact on health outcomes. Building and supporting walkable communities for all necessitates collaboration, supportive data, and community support. We invite you to attend this workshop to learn how to use data to advocate for walkable communities. During this interactive workshop, you will learn about the importance of data, focusing on equity with data, collaborating across sectors, and useful data resources, such as the National Equity Atlas and the 2016 Benchmarking Report Website. You will have the opportunity to create and practice messaging around walkable communities with supportive data. Join us to learn how to build, support, and sustain walkable communities through data and collaboration.

This training is being led by Kate Robb of the American Public Health Association (APHA), Ken McLeod of the League of American Bicyclists, and Steven M. Lavrenz, PhD of the Institute of Transportation Engineers.
