In its second year, the FHWA Health in Transportation Working Group accomplished many of the goals its members set for itself, and in doing so helped to expand knowledge about the connections between health and transportation within FHWA, U.S. DOT, and the general public. The Working Group's new web presence provides a venue to share its activities and products with interested parties within and outside of the Federal government. The development of Moving Healthy and the Frequently Asked Questions document are recent examples of products that the Working Group is sharing on its website.
As the Working Group moves into its third year, some of its 2013 accomplishments will continue to develop, including the Strategic Initiative Framework for Health in Corridor Transportation Planning. In 2014, the Working Group will continue to expand awareness of health in transportation issues, collaborate with potential partners in expanding the consideration of health in transportation, and educate FHWA, U.S. DOT, and external agencies on ways to incorporate health in transportation decisionmaking.
