Transport and Health Integrated research NetworK - THINK Podcast

THINK is a collaboration between the psychology department of Aberystwyth University and Public Health Wales, and is funded by Health and Care Research Wales to improve health outcomes for all, in relation to transport. The network is made up of individuals working in academic, practitioner, policy or charity roles across different areas of transport and health. THINK facilitates research, training and seminars to develop knowledge and provide opportunities to work collaboratively across four different themes - air and noise pollution; injuries and deaths stemming from vehicle crashes; the impact of active travel (walking and cycling) on health; and the impact of vehicles dividing communities. You can sign up as a member of THINK for free on the website or follow us @TransportHealth
