How State Public Health Can Sustain and Support the Physical Activity Guidelines

January 28, 2013

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Eastern

Meeting Description:

In 2008, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued the inaugural Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans(PAG). The PAG were designed to provide information and guidance for policymakers and health professionals on the types and amounts of physical activity that produce long-term health benefits.
State health agencies have the ability to be key players in the promotion of physical activity in their states. They have the partnerships and relationships necessary to spread the recommendations of the PAG to an extended audience of policymakers, physical educators, health providers, and the public in order to educate them on the amounts, types, and intensity of physical activity needed for a healthy lifestyle across the lifespan and for various populations.
This webinar will provide an overview of the PAG and highlight state examples of how West Virginia has taken the guidelines to develop a statewide physical activity plan and how Colorado's state health agency has engaged and leveraged stakeholders to promote physical activity statewide.
