Friday Transportation Seminars at Portland State University have been a tradition since 2000. You can join us online at 11:30 AM.
This seminar will discuss how transportation agencies are in a unique position to reduce health disparities in the African American, African Immigrant & Refugee communities through sustainable policy, systems, and environmental changes. These three speakers from the Multnomah County Health Department will present the findings of their recent Crash and Safety report. They will discuss their data and methodology to connect the dots between chronic disease disparities, leading causes of death in communities, and transportation inequities as determinants to health. They will also present policy recommendations and a call to action.
KEY LEARNING OUTCOMES
- Learn baseline data on transportation safety for the Black/African American and African Immigrant/Refugee populations
- PSE action steps for transportation agencies to consider for consider for sustainable change
- Learn about opportunities to engage in ongoing and future regional transportation efforts
