Community Working Session: Access to Healthcare/Social Services

August 8 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Hosted by the City of Austin and the Ford Mobility City: One Challenge –

How might mobility solutions in Austin increase access for residents to receive healthcare and social services?
The City:One Challenge is a program hosted by the City of Austin and Ford Mobility in collaboration with community partners and corporate sponsors that aims to crowd-source ideas that will transform transportation in cities. The goal is to identify new mobility solutions that create immediate impact for residents and support broader planning efforts in cities.
Through a series of Community Working Sessions, we’re bringing people together in your neighborhood and from across the city to develop a deep understanding of the mobility experiences faced by residents, businesses, community groups and visitors in Austin.
Each Community Working Session focuses on a different topic in mobility and transportation. For Community Working Session #4, we are focusing on Access to Healthcare and Social Services. During these events you will be collaborating with a diverse group of community members and leaders from across the city in order to understand what questions are the most important to tackle, as we work to transform mobility in Austin.
Free admission and dinner will be provided. You can RSVP here.
At this event we will:
-Learn more about the what and why of the City:One Challenge
-Discover stories and insights from fellow community members
-Create exciting solutions for improving access to mobility in our city
-Encourage community storytelling and get hands-on learning with tools to help you continue the research throughout our community
Be part of the movement! This event is open to everyone. We encourage residents, businesses and community groups to join us and share their unique point of view. Share how you experience transportation in Austin today and how mobility either enables or serves as a barrier to accessing the important aspects of your daily life.
Walk-ins welcome! Please note that there is a capacity limit of 50 people, so RSVP is highly recommended – and free!
If you need any reasonable accommodations please e-mail Michael at mikedhenderson1@gmail.com
