Quarterly Meet-Up (Keshia Pollack)

Quarterly Meet-Up; Pollack

Fellow Transportationists,

We are pleased to announce our next Quarterly Meet-Up:

Date- Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Time- 5:30pm to 8:00pm
Location- Max’s Taphouse (Upstairs Bar)
Guest Speaker- Keshia Pollack, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

What impacts do our transportation projects have on public health? As Associate Director of Training and Education for the Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH), Dr. Pollack’s research uses injury epidemiology, health policy, and health impact assessment (HIA) to advance policies that create safe and healthy environments where people live, work, play, and travel. Health impact assessment (HIA) is a rapidly growing field that helps decision-makers in many sectors identify the potential—and often overlooked—health effects of proposed laws, regulations, projects, and programs. HIA offers practical recommendations for ways to minimize risks and capitalize on opportunities to improve health. Dr. Pollack will introduce attendees to HIA and using examples, describe its application for decisions in the transportation sector.

Dr. Pollack will be speaking at 6:00pm, and will hang around for some Q&A afterwards.

Before you hop in your car, THINK! There are other ways to get to this venue. The following transit services stop within a 5 min walking distance of this venue:

  • Bike racks available just north of Max’s on Broadway (outside of Joe’s Bike Shop)
