Physical Activity

Welcome to the Physical Activity Section! We are a diverse group committed to advocating for the importance of physical activity in public health and public policy. We advocate for health-benefiting physical activity through health practice and research. We invite practitioners, activists, researchers and educators to join us in promoting physical activity through collaborative scholarship, active living policies and environmental change to reduce the risk factors associated with chronic diseases. Join us to learn about other ways that you can contribute to developing and sustaining a healthier, more active America!
