Policy Corner: San Francisco shows gain from PA-friendly policies

San Francisco, this year’s ACSM Annual Meeting host city, has moved up the ranks to fourth in the ACSM 2012 American Fitness Index™ (AFI) data report. The annual report evaluated the most populous city areas in the U.S. to identify the healthiest and fittest places in the United States. San Francisco was previously ranked sixth in the 2011 rankings.

The Bay Area ranked first on personal health indicators related to health behaviors, chronic health problems and health care. The area ranked 14th on community/environmental indicators associated to the built environment, recreational facilities, park-related expenditures, physical education requirements and primary health care providers.

San Francisco’s movement in the rankings demonstrates what advocacy for both proactive health and wellness policies and demonstrating local interest in factors which improve quality of life can do for your community. Everything from availability of fresh fruits and vegetables to the condition of your sidewalks is a factor in the overall health of your city or town. Let decision makers know that the health of their citizenry is your priority today. more
