At the January meeting of the ITE International Board of Direction, the Board established a 2017 initiative on Transportation and Health. Past President, Paula Flores, was charged with working with ITE staff and volunteers in the development of this initiative and the preparation of a Statement of Intent to share with ITE members. Over the last several months Paula and Jeff Lindley, ITE's Chief Technical Officer, have worked to lay out a series of steps and actions that ITE can take in the coming months to advance this initiative.
The impact of transportation on health is receiving increased attention both here in the United States and around the world. ITE intends to be part of the conversation on this issue and we are working find ways to educate our members on how to incorporate health considerations into the planning, design and operation of the transportation system.
