Experts in transportation, gerontology, psychology, and other disciplines are gathering at the University of Michigan for the two-day symposium Meeting the Challenges of Safe Transportation in an Aging Society.
The symposium takes place September 14 and 15 and addresses the latest research to improve the safe transportation of older adults from a broad array of disciplines including engineering, public health, psychology and social sciences, medicine, public policy, economics, and urban planning, among others. Research will focus on older adults themselves, the modes of transportation they use, and their roadway environment.
The symposium is sponsored by the Center for Advancing Transportation Leadership and Safety (ATLAS Center), the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI), Elsevier Ltd, the Center for Accessibility and Safety for an Aging Population (ASAP), and Transportation Research Center for Livable Communities (TRCLC).
