Episode #29: Benefits of a More Walkable Oklahoma
July 28, 2022
It’s easy to often find ourselves behind the wheel or behind a desk, causing us to fall behind on physical activity. And when our built environment lacks sidewalks, trails, bike lanes – in other words, walkability and active transportation – it becomes even harder to get up and be physically active. But efforts are underway within communities of all sizes to make them easier and safer for residents and visitors to walk, jog, run and bike – in both residential neighborhoods and business districts that profit from increased foot traffic. To help us see the big picture and hear specific examples, the TSET Better Health Podcast this month welcomes Ron Frantz and Shane Hampton of the University of Oklahoma’s Institute for Quality Communities, former Tonkawa Elementary School Principal Kelly Martin and TSET Healthy Living Program Coordinator Doug Walton.
