Webcast of Step It Up!
Only half of American adults get enough physical activity to reduce the risk of chronic disease, the leading cause of death in the U.S. Walking is an easy way to start and maintain a physically active lifestyle. The Surgeon General aims to increase walking across the nation by calling for access to safe and convenient places to walk and wheelchair roll. Watch the webcast archive for the launch of this important Call To Action that offers strategies for increasing walking and walkable communities for people of all ages and abilities.
Juliette Rizzo, Deputy Director of Special Projects and Partnerships for the United States Department of Education, addresses the inclusion of people with disability in the Call to Action and in any future federal inner agency work groups. Watch her speech at the 36 minute mark.
