Surgeon General to Issue Historic Call to Action on Walking and Walkable Communities

On Wednesday, September 9, U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy will release a Call to Action on Walking and Walkable Communities. You'll have the opportunity to join the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for the unveiling of the Surgeon General's Call to Action, via a live webcast. ACSM has been a key partner in the development of the call to action.

Walking is a simple form of physical activity that can be done almost anywhere. Encouraging Americans to add walking to their daily routine has enormous long-term health benefits. Good health is not the only benefit of walking. In fact, there is a broad range of individual and community benefits that accrue when people walk more often and when communities are designed to make walking safe, enjoyable and convenient.

This is a unique opportunity to promote the health benefits of walking and bring about real change. The Call to Action will support and complement your organization's focus to improve health and wellness. To help support and advance the Call to Action, background information and a package of call-to-action resources have been developed and will be shared with members following the official announcement.

The event will be webcast from 10:00 – 11:15 a.m. EDT on September 9. Watch for more in next week’s edition of SMB! more
