Topic: "Transportation and Health: How Will We Get There? Helping cities plan for and encourage the health benefits of bicycling and walking."

Woodcock’s research focuses on modeling health and sustainability, especially how to improve our health in the transition to a low-carbon transportation system. He will introduce the methods and results of studies that have modeled the health impacts of shifting from driving automobiles to walking and bicycling. He will also look at the science behind the models, the gaps in evidence, and laying the foundations for a model that will work globally.
