National Physical Activity Plan is Off and Running
The National Physical Activity Plan (www.physicalactivityplan.org) is focused on making societal changes to make routine physical activity simply integrated into daily life. More walkable neighborhoods; counseling from doctors on the importance of staying active; increased opportunities for physical activity and physical education in schools – all these are goals of the National Physical Activity Plan and will make our nation and community healthier – naturally.
Many SC communities are already taking steps to make the healthy choice the easy choice. The SC Obesity State Plan contains strategies for increasing physical activity, which are further supported by the National Plan. Changes are being made in communities, childcare centers, faith based organizations, health care, schools and worksites that will provide opportunities to increase physical activity.
