Event: June 4- Gubernatorial Forum on Transportation and Smart Growth

Join MPHA in meeting the candidates for Governor of Massachusetts and find out where they stand on transportation and smart growth issues across the Commonwealth.

A healthy transportation system is critical to advancing public health and health equity. It can support public health by:

  • Promoting physical activity through walking and biking
  • Reducing emissions and the impact of asthma and other respiratory conditions
  • Reducing injuries and deaths from traffic accidents
  • Connecting residents to economic opportunities and resources such as healthy food stores and health care facilities.

The election of a new governor is a huge opportunity to improve the health of cities and communities across the state!
