Workshop on Transportation Policies and Health Inequalities
In this workshop, a multisectoral group in Edmonton set out to identify health inequalities arising from transportation policies, and then searched for ways to address them.
Published in December, 2010.  Description.
.

In 2009, the NCCHPP and the population health team of Edmonton's regional health authority (Capital Health) organized a workshop on health inequalities resulting from transportation and related policies. This one-day workshop, held in Edmonton, brought together representatives from the NCCHPP, Capital Health, traffic engineers, urban planners, academics and members of non-profit organizations from Edmonton and other Albertan cities.
.
The purpose of the day was to focus on public policies that could mitigate health inequalities produced by transportation and transportation-related policies.
