  • Beyond the Silo: Strategies for Effective Health/Transportation Sector Collaboration
    Wednesday, June 3, 9:00-10:30 a.m.
    The Children's Health Fund research and program experience has determined that lack of non-emergency medical transportation, particularly in rural communities, has a significant, demonstrable impact on child health access and severely undermines the potential for appropriately connecting children and families to a medical home. Recognition of the critical role of partnerships with stakeholders, medical and transportation providers will ensure appropriate access to transportation resources that are essential to realization of the goals of national health reform. Join us for an informative conversation about the latest work being undertaken by the Childrens Health Fund and Community Transportation that is bringing medical professionals and transportation providers together.

  • Riding the Wave: Building Ladders of Opportunity for Youth with Disabilities through Education & Transit Partnerships
    Thursday, June 4, 8:30-10:30 a.m.
    Presentation: Riding the Wave: Building Ladders of Opportunity for Youth with Disabilities through Education & Transit Partnerships
    Limited knowledge of and access to transportation is a barrier toward the attainment of post highschool goals and the realization of community opportunities related to learning, working, and living independently for youth with disabilities. The US Department of Transportation, Federal Transit Administration requires communities to implement coordinated transportation systems. Typically, as community planners and transit professionals conceptualize and implement coordinated transportation plans and systems, youth with disabilities, educators, and youth transition professionals are not included in the process. Session attendees will acquire strategies to engage students, educators, youth transition, and other human services professionals to build their capacity to develop inclusive coordinated transportation plans that support ladders of opportunity for youth with disabilities.
