Surgeon General Call to Action for more walking and walkable communities…..

September 9, 2015 at 7:57 am Leave a comment

Improving community walkability is the concept; however, it is the execution of this concept that is critical. If the executed design is not inclusive, it is a missed opportunity.

Penny for your thoughts…..

“The Call to Action will highlight the significant health burden that exists in the U.S. today due to physical inactivity – contributing to more than 10% of the preventable mortality in America today. More specifically, it will make recommendations to a number of key sectors about critical actions they can take to improve community walkability and increase walking.” (excerpt from article link below)
