Beyond Getting From Point A to Point B: Transportation as a Public Health Issue

Whether by car, train, bus, bike, e-scooter, or foot, transportation is more than a way to get from Point A to Point B; it is a critical public health issue. In this Health Forum, we explore how transportation policies affect health equity, the environment, as well as the health and safety of community members. Join us to learn about Los Angeles’ transportation landscape through a public health lens and to understand why sound transportation policies are crucial for ensuring healthy communities.

Muntu Davis, MD, MPH
Health Officer
Los Angeles County Department of Public Health
