Our transportation system impacts our way of life, the air we breathe, and the vitality of our communities.
Prevention Institute believes transportation is more than moving cars. Transportation represents the convergence of many health, safety, and equity issues. It is a gateway to opportunity, good health, economic vitality, and thriving communities.
Prevention Institute develops strategies to advance health in transportation policy and build linkages between public health, social justice, transportation, and land use planners. Our approach prioritizes integrating health into all policies and thus focuses on building the capacity of public health to effectively engage in transportation efforts and garner resources for health, safety, and equity.
