UTC Seminar: Community Mobility Among People with Disabilities
February 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
UTC Seminar Series Presentation February 20
People with disabilities encounter numerous barriers to community mobility that span across travel modes of fixed route, paratransit, ridesharing, and the pedestrian network. At the first UTC Seminar Series presentation of the Spring 2020 semester, Dr. Yochai Eisenberg of the UIC College of Applied Health Sciences will explain how community mobility is related to health outcomes and healthcare access. He will share research that addresses barriers to community mobility by examining GPS derived travel patterns of people with disabilities, implementation of accessible pedestrian infrastructure in US cities, and ridesharing to healthcare appointments. The lecture will provide new insights about the relationship between transportation and health for people with disabilities. The presentation, “Community Mobility Among People with Disabilities: Implications for Health Outcomes and Access to Care,” will be held February 20 starting at noon at the Great Cities Institute Conference Room at CUPPA Hall. All are invited. Pizza will be served.
