ADD40 - Transportation and Sustainability
The Health and Transportation Joint Subcommittee, under the auspices of its sponsoring Committees, seeks research papers on aspects of the connections between health and transportation. The aim of this call for papers is to expand and improve the current understanding and evaluation of transportation policies, procedures and actions that impact health. Given that transportation decisions have various impacts - both positive and negative - on health and health inequities, there is much to be learned. Specifically, papers are being sought that describe the programs, policies, incentives or disincentives, emerging methods and/or interventions that show the most promising potential to improve health outcomes through transportation decision-making, including planning and/or operations. The Joint Subcommittee is also interested in learning how the health effects are distributed across population groups (e.g., based on factors including income, race and ethnicity, sex, age).

Paper Submission Requirements
TRB has a single paper submittal deadline for the Annual Meeting. Papers must be in PDF format and submitted by August 1. The paper submission website will close when it is no longer August 1 anywhere in the world. Also, authors are asked to add line numbering to their papers in their word-processing program (starting with number one on each page) prior to converting to PDF to facilitate the review process. TRB recommends that authors submit their papers well before the deadline to avoid last minute complications and delays.
