A panel discussion featuring John Hickey, Missouri State Coordinator at Clean Energy for Biden; Dr. Christine Ekenga, Assistant Professor of Washington University; and Dr. Ray Slavin, Clinic Coordinator for St. Louis Asthma Clinic

Mobility is essential to the growth of our communities but moving people from place to place can exact a steep price. Transit is on track to make an impact on climate change with the move to electric vehicles. While these changes take time, the panel will discuss the public health benefit of making that transition. This panel discussion provides the opportunity to learn more about how the future deployment of an electric fleet in St. Louis, Kansas City, Columbia, and Springfield will impact the respective communities and the state as a whole for decades to come.
