This Week in Total Health: Innovation and Transportation Rule the Week

After being closed to the public for a few weeks for maintenance work, the Center for Total Health was delighted to host several tours this week.

The Transportation Research Board’s Annual Meeting brought tens of thousands of transportation experts to Washington. We got to spend time with two experts who are innovating public spaces and transportation in very exciting ways – Sam Piper (Boston-based Senior Planner at Alta Planning + Design, @altaplanning) and Leah Shahum (San Francisco-based Director of the Vision Zero Network, @visionzeronet).

We also had the opportunity to spend time with the Veterans Administration’s Innovation Specialists (@VAInnovation), who were in town from all over the US for a series of meetings and site visits. Of course, they chose to take their photograph with Dominique, the CTH’s resident veteran.
