Join the Metro Transit Office of Transit-Oriented Development for an engaging discussion about the relationship between transit-oriented development and public health.
Speakers from the public sector, advocacy community, and academia will share their perspectives on how creating more dense, walkable, transit-oriented neighborhoods can affect public health, the importance of centering public health in planning and projects, and why public health should be central to housing and transportation planning conversations.
