Want to learn more about how disparities in the social and built environments impact physical activity, as well as how to increase active transportation in your community?

Description:
Walking or bicycling to school, work or just to get around offers benefits to health, the environment and the economy. At some point in the day, everyone is a pedestrian, yet many factors influence vulnerable and marginalized populations engaging in active transportation. These populations remain at greater risk for pedestrian fatalities; however, solutions exist to make walking and bicycling safer and more accessible for everyone.

Presenters:
Melissa Bopp, Ph.D., FACSM | Pennsylvania State University
NiCole R. Keith, Ph.D., FACSM | Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis
Brian B. Parr, Ph.D., ACSM-CEP | University of South Carolina Aiken
Melissa Wehnert Roti, PhD, FACSM, ACSM-EP, GEI | Westfield State University
