Summit Explores Healthcare Access Strategies

"Rides to Wellness: An Executive Health and Transportation Summit," a recent half-day event organized by the National Center for Mobility Management (NCMM), attracted leaders from public transportation, healthcare organizations and federal agencies to explore strategies to eliminate one of the largest barriers to healthcare access: a lack of transportation. Participants at the Opening Plenary Panel, "Federal Perspectives," include, from left, APTA President & CEO Michael Melaniphy, who provided welcome remarks; Henrika Buchanan-Smith, associate administrator, FTA Office of Program Management, session moderator; FTA Acting Administrator Therese McMillan, who also served as event host; Kathy Greenlee, administrator, Administration for Community Living, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; and Audrey Rowe, administrator, Food and Nutrition Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture. NCMM, a technical assistance center funded by FTA, is collaboratively operated by APTA, Easter Seals Inc. and the Community Transportation Association of America.
