Policy Corner: Healthy People 2020: Helping Define U.S. Goals

As a crucial part of the scientific and physical activity community, ACSM members are encouraged to help shape the direction of the Healthy People 2020 objectives. Healthy People provides science-based, 10-year, national objectives for promoting health and preventing disease. Healthy People 2020 will reflect assessments of major risks to health and wellness, changing public health priorities, and emerging issues related to our nation's health preparedness and prevention. Those wishing to comment may submit online through Dec. 31. Responses may comment on existing objectives or propose new ones. Former ACSM President Angela Smith, M.D., FACSM, recently gave testimony at a public meeting on the objectives. ACSM members can use Dr. Smith's remarks to formulate their own comments for the HP 2020 online objectives. more
