TRB Committee on Transportation and Public Health AME70
Get Involved in AME70
There are many ways to get involved with the Committee. It all depends on how much time and effort you can contribute.
We are a group of volunteers, which means the projects we take on and accomplish are a direct function of our friends and members. The best part is that you do not have to be a member to contribute or stay connected.
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: AME70@trbhealth.org.
TRB’s over 200 standing committees are communities of individuals who share an interest and expertise in transportation. AME70 is about Health—Public Health and Population Health. Committee membership is limited to 25 core members who lead the activities of a community of friends and volunteers.
About the Committee
AME70, the TRB Standing Committee on Transportation and Public Health, creates a space for engineers, health professionals, planners, epidemiologists, economists, advocates, elected officials, and academics to expand knowledge about the positive and negative health impacts of transportation policies, procedures, and actions.
The committee's scope includes equity and an array of social and environmental determinants of health.
