Achieving Health Equity with Inclusive Interdisciplinary Walk/Move Audits
Yes Molly we’ll be emailing out resources and a link to the recording following the webinar. Thanks for your interest.
Chicago Tribune reporting on the “cycling while black” study:
I see that we're still creating ghettoes in 2020
Minneapolis, MN is another example of this.
The webinar recording and a resource list (America Walks, NACDDD, CDC and other resources) will be shared after today's webinar. Please contact Charles Brown directly with a request for his materials. Charles' bio at Rutgers University and his related contact information is available at: http://vtc.rutgers.edu/charles-brown/
Dawn-- thank you for joining us.
Powerful example, April. I'm so glad you're still alive after being hit by an SUV. It highlights Charles' point-- Without disability represented as a population indicator in the data collection systems, we cannot include these numerous examples of hit disabled pedestrians in quality improvement and investments in advancing heath equity. Without disability represented in data collection as a demographic, people with disabilities are not intentionally engaged as leaders in community change.
Fran-- thank you for our leadership on this panel and in this work and for highlighting the toll that inaccessible design and segregation has on emotional and mental health.
Regarding rentable scooters, UCLA has done one study of 250 hospital patients involved in scooter crashes. Here is the citation: Injuries Associated With Standing Electric Scooter UseTarak K.

Thank you Latoya for bringing up the challenges that parents with mobility issues face in having access to their children and school staff in educational settings. In the world of special education, we address challenges for students, but parents often get overlooked. It's wonderful to have you as an advocate!
Latoya-- thank you for highlighting how community design and the built environment affects and limits opportunities for disabled parents to be involved in and support their children at school and in other community spaces. And thank you for you work at Liberty Resources, Philadelphia's center for independent living, to coordinate a peer support group for parents. It's an exemplar community asset that feeds the advocacy needed to make changes in our schools and in the community.
Karin-- thank you for that powerful story on falls due to failures in the built environment. I wonder what data we have to describe how often this happens within the population and in various neighborhoods. I wonder if these data can be disaggregated for people with disabilities.
Virtual I2Audits-- Access to and preferences for technology, internet and accessible formats of the meeting materials are all issues that must be addressed to engage a diverse and representative group in the opportunities to advance healthy communities and health equity.
Happy Anniversary ADA!!
Thank you everyone!!
