Transportation significantly affects health through traffic crashes, air pollution exposure, access to healthy food, access to physical activity, and economic opportunity, which are only a few of the implications.  Health advocates are beginning to recognize the importance of getting involved in transportation planning and policy to ensure the health implications of such work are considered.  Transportation advocates are also interested in better understanding the intersection of health and transportation.  Data regarding health and equity outcomes is compelling, and can help inform policy proposals and transportation decision-making.  Additionally, working across disciplines presents an opportunity for a new cadre of advocates to join and provide support for healthier transportation solutions.  This toolkit will help health advocates better understand transportation issues and their related health connections, and help inform transportation advocates on the importance of health in their work.
