Register now for the latest session in the Collaborative Sciences Center for Road Safety (CSCRS) Research to Practice Bytes Series on Wednesday, April 26 at 11:30am PT for "Developing an online Vision Zero resource library." Vision Zero is a growing movement throughout the U.S. to eliminate all traffic-related deaths and injuries while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all persons. This presentation provides an overview of the applied, year-long, community-led service-learning project developed by the UNC Highway Safety Research Center for a group of Master of Public Health students in the Health Behavior and Health Equity departments at the Gillings School of Global Public Health at UNC Chapel Hill. Students were tasked with developing an online resource library that includes tangible and actionable tools, activities, and other resources that interdisciplinary stakeholders can engage with to make their communities healthier and build community buy-in for equity-centered road safety initiatives, like Vision Zero. This project included conducting key informant interviews, generating reports that detail the roles different stakeholder groups play in Vision Zero efforts, conducting design thinking activities to inform a Dataverse resource repository, and developing a website sustainability plan. Register for the webinar.
