In August 2011, the Town of Aberdeen in Moore County released the proposed Aberdeen Pedestrian Transportation Plan (APTP). The goals of the APTP are to create more walkable spaces, increase pedestrian connectivity, calm traffic patterns, and increase pedestrian safety (APTP, 2011). During the fall semester of 2011, the team collaborated with Melissa Watford of FirstHealth and conducted a Health Impact Assessment (HIA) to evaluate the potential impacts of the APTP on child health and health disparities in Aberdeen.
