 Title:

Personal & Community Health: Nebraska Communities Taking Action for Increased Walking & Biking

Date & Time:

March 3, 2016, 3:30-5:00pm CDT 

Description:

Public health.  Physical and mental wellbeing.  Recreational activities.  Economic development and regional vitality.  Access to educational facilities.  Equitable planning and development.  Modeling environmental stewardship and healthy living.  Walkable and bikeable communities present a variety of solutions and provide a wide range of benefits.  With a recent call to action from the United States Surgeon General and rising health issues across the nation, both urban and rural Nebraska communities and local health departments are looking for successful strategies to increase walking and biking for overall community health.  Hear from and interact live with local Nebraska public health leaders in Grand Island, Hastings, Omaha and Sidney as they tell their stories about a transformative process that they have used to engage local communities in taking action for increased walking and biking.  From expanding trail signage and bike path development to walking clubs and worksite strategies, these stories are for modeling and inspiration.  Local experts will share some best practices and case studies for anyone interested in increased walking and biking for personal, community or environmental health.  #SLPSThursday   #WalkNE
