  • National Physical Activity Plan Seeks Input on Revisions

    APTA members have an opportunity to contribute to the first-ever revision of the National Physical Activity Plan (NPAP), a high-profile effort to create a comprehensive set of policies, programs, and initiatives to increase physical activity in all segments of the American population.

    The NPAP Alliance has released an online survey that it will use to guide changes to the plan, which was released in 2010. The Alliance is particularly interested in views on how Americans' physical activity levels can be increased, what strategies could be effective in this promotion, and how the success of the NPAP can be ensured. Deadline for responses is October 31.

    Respondents can comment on and rate strategies in 8 areas: business; education; health care; mass media; parks, recreation, fitness, and sports; public health; transportation, land use, and community design; and volunteers and nonprofits.

    APTA is a member of the NPAP Alliance board of directors.

    Survey tip: the survey form includes many optional "free text" opportunities—if you prefer you can leave any or all free text areas blank.
