Public Health Perspectives: 15th Feb, LSHTM

Our second seminar brought together public health experts with transport modellers and researchers, challenging both to think about the challenges posed, and benefits to be gained, by combining transport modelling with public health perspectives and vice versa. It was a highly interactive, workshop-based event, with small groups discussing issues in detail and respondents summarising discussions and drawing out the key points. Audio available below.
