Importance of Access to Healthcare

When: Thursday, March 30, 2023 | 3:00 - 4:30 PM ET

This webinar is led by the ITE Transportation and Health Committee.

Webinar Description:

Access to healthcare is becoming even more critical as population continues to age. Providing access to healthcare is an essential service that should be provided for everyone. Funding is often an obstacle with providing necessary service. Dr. Cyneetha Strong, a family physician who is an Assistant Professor at FSU College of Medicine, and Dr. Sandra Whitehead, a national expert on the intersection of health and the built environment, and professor and program director of the Sustainable Urban Planning at George Washington University will frame out Social Determinants of Health, why it's so important to have access to health care, how lack of transportation is "the canary in the coalmine" for other Social Determinants of Health, provide examples of places that have good access and discuss alternatives means of access.

Join us to learn what role can transportation professionals play to bridge the gaps within providing this essential service.
