Public Health

The Public Health Working Group

The Public Health Working Group was established to provide a forum for various public health stakeholders throughout the region to convene and provide comments and recommendations for the promotion of public health in transportation and land use planning as well its integration into the 2016-2040 RTP/SCS. In addition, the workshops will detail SCAG’s public health related activities. Meetings occur on a quarterly basis and are open to agency staff, elected officials and the public.

Go Human

Go Human is a community outreach and advertising campaign with the goals of reducing traffic collisions in Southern California and encouraging people to walk and bike more. We hope to create safer and healthier cities through education, advocacy, information sharing, and events that help residents re-envision their neighborhoods.

As the Go Human campaign grows, we want to keep you apprised of upcoming events and available resources. You are welcome to sign up for our email list for updates or use the Go Human website as an information hub to help spread the word and make your own community safer to walk and bike.

Randall Lewis Health Policy Fellowship

SCAG has collaborated with Partners for Better Health to support the Randall Lewis Health Policy Fellowship, which aims to ensure the development of young health professionals to influence positive change in public policy systems and the built environment in our local municipalities. In addition, these prestigious and competitive fellowships will create educational and professional opportunities for students in health policy and related disciplines, provide for the expansion of the regional health policy infrastructure, and retain essential intellectual capital in our local communities.
