The Rural Health Information Hub and the NORC Walsh Center for Rural Health Analysis will present the Rural Philanthropy Toolkit, which is designed to help rural communities to build relationships with philanthropies. Developed by NORC on behalf of the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP), the toolkit compiles emerging practices and resources to support rural communities seeking to build relationships with philanthropies. This toolkit presents practical strategies that can help rural communities prepare for partnerships with philanthropies; conduct outreach to philanthropies; and establish and sustain partnerships with philanthropies.
In addition to an overview of the toolkit we will feature two speakers that will describe lessons learned related to establishing and sustaining partnerships with philanthropies. The Rural Philanthropy Toolkit is currently available on the RHIhub website.
Dr. Robert Feldmaier, Director of the Center for Advanced Automotive Technology at Macomb Community College (MCC), will present on automotive technology information provided to future automotive technicians at MCC. Dr. Feldmaier will relate how the rapidly changing automotive technologies, including the new technology that will be added to Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to improve driver and passenger safety, continuously present challenges to educators.
The goal is for the audience to understand:
- Why there is such interest in autonomous vehicles.
- How the technology works.
- What the remaining challenges are.
- How this affects education.
This webinar will introduce the soon-to-be released, ITE informational report, Transit and Traffic Impact Studies State of the Practice, prepared as a collaborative effort over a period of several years by a project committee of the ITE Transit Standing Committee of the Complete Streets Council. The report is intended to fill a major gap in the area of addressing transit service in site traffic impact studies and the findings may have equal applicability to other types of transportation studies as well.
During the webinar, presenters, also primary contributors of the report, will delve into how the report will help local jurisdiction staff and transportation consultants who are responsible for scoping the Traffic Impact Studies to: 1) develop the scope of work describing the issues to be addressed; 2) identify the metrics and thresholds to be used in the analysis; and 3) write the local agency policy and guidelines that practitioners must follow in conducting these studies.
