A powerful connection exists between community health and transportation and land use decisions. These decisions impact many critical issues, including safety, physical activity, environmental quality, equity, and accessibility. Professionals from all fields are embracing strategic partnerships to ensure that health is fully integrated into transportation and land use policies. However, to guarantee the long-term sustainability of these partnerships, public health agencies must institutionalize the ways in which they collaborate, both internally and with partner organizations.


This two-part workshop will provide examples of how state and local public health departments can facilitate successful and enduring partnerships with transportation and land use agencies. During Part I,hear from diverse presenters and be introduced to new resources that can help professionals forge and sustain cross-agency partnerships. During Part II, listen to roundtable discussions that identify strategies for creating strong, lasting partnerships between public health, transportation, and land use agencies.
