In observance of National Public Health Week , the American Public Health Association invites you to join in a special Google+ Hangout On Air about active transportation’s role in helping the United States become the healthiest nation in one generation.

Making active transportation a realistic, affordable and convenient option for all transportation users would help reduce health impacts and also promote physical activity, recreation and environmental preservation.

This Google+ Hangout On Air will feature an exceptional panel of public health professionals, leaders and advocates who will share unique perspectives and experiences surrounding active transportation in communities.

Amy Eyler, PhD, assistant professor at Washington University in St. Louis and chair of APHA’s Physical Activity Section
Rachel A. Davis, MSW, managing director, Prevention Institute
