Save the date for training to learn about advocating for healthy transportation

A patient’s life choices, circumstances and environment can greatly impact health outcomes; the results of inactivity can be devastating. Learn to become an advocate for healthy transportation at “How We Get There Matters,” a daylong training seminar on Thursday, Dec. 11, at Metro Regional Center, 600 NE Grand Ave., in Portland.

Participants will receive 5.5 Category 1 CME credits and learn the context and skills necessary to use medical expertise to successfully advocate for transportation funding and policy decisions that can result in positive health outcomes.

The cost of the training is $85 and includes breakfast and lunch. The keynote address will be delivered by Andy Dannenberg, M.D., of the University of Washington’s School of Public Health. More details about registration will be released in the coming days.
