Seeking Ambassadors: Communications Guide

We are recruiting ambassadors to share a ready-made PowerPoint (link) of key findings from the NCHRP Guidebook for Communications between Transportation and Public Health Communities (Guide). You do not have to be an expert on the Guide to share it. We would appreciate you letting people know it’s out there! An upcoming speaking engagement, staff meeting, or gathering of a working group or task force that you participate in provide excellent opportunities to share the Guide. Please adapt it for your audience and time available. Contact us with questions and we would love to hear your thoughts on the Guide and how you are putting it into practice:

About the Committee

The committee's scope includes equity and an array of social and environmental determinants of health.
