  • National Physical Activity Plan Seeks Input on Revisions—Due February 26

    APTA members have an opportunity to comment on the latest 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. But hurry—the deadline is February 26.

    The NPAP Alliance has released an online survey to help evaluate proposed revisions to the plan, which was originally released in 2010. Respondents can comment on and rate strategies in 9 areas: business and industry; community, recreation, fitness, and parks; education; faith-based; health care; mass media; public health; sport; and transportation, land use, and community design. The Alliance estimates that each section should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

    APTA is a member of the NPAP Alliance board of directors and offers several resources on physical activity, including a prevention and wellness webpage that links to podcasts on the harmful effects of inactivity.
