WTS NC Triangle    -  Transportation YOU 

Join us for the next WTS Transportation YOU Event on November 17th!

Can you walk or bike to school? Do you have access to healthy food options in your area? If there was a way to access these things, how would you take advantage of them? Join us at the next Transportation YOU event where you will learn what makes a healthy community by creating your own!

Sign up for our next WTS Transportation YOU event on November 17th where we will explore health and transportation with you being a healthy community planner! Learn from our expert, Kara Peach, about the overlap between health and transportation, and use your creativity to showcase your own healthy community. Ms. Peach has a diverse background including developing and managing obesity prevention in adolescents, enhancing the health of communities in North Carolina, and integrating a healthy perspective into transportation. Ms. Peach is currently a Transportation Planner at VHB.

This is the 5th year of our chapter’s involvement in Transportation YOU, WTS’ STEM outreach and mentorship program for girls. All who attend will be entertained with food & fun! Our event will focus on a hands on activity that will demonstrate our topic. Dinner will be provided. RSVP is appreciated for an accurate head count. We hope you can join us!

Transportation YOU is part of an on-going initiative of WTS to spark girls' interest in a wide variety of transportation careers, especially those tied to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). For more information about Transportation YOU or our local chapter of WTS check out:
