ASPPH Presents Webinar: Where Public Health and Transportation Collide

Every day we rely on transportation to get us from point A to point B. From driving our vehicles, riding public transportation, riding our bikes, to walking, transportation is a significant part of our daily lives. However, transportation is a leading cause of death.

In this interactive webinar, we will discuss the role of public health within transportation, current challenges faced within impaired driving and occupant protection, and how injury prevention methods are implemented to protect lives on our roadways. Prevention measures are key to decrease serious injuries and fatalities on our roadways. You can be a part of the solution. During National Teen Driver Safety Week, we encourage all road users to join us and learn how you can create a safer driving environment.
