The Safe Routes to School National Conference was held April 5–7 in Columbus, Ohio. The conference, Intersections: Where Transportation and Health Meet, explored programs across the country that are pioneering safe routes to school for children to create healthy, vibrant communities. The conference featured both Plan4Health coalitions and organizational partners in this work, including the Plan4Health grantee in the host city — the Columbus Public Health Chronic Disease Prevention Advisory Board.
