How State Health Agencies Can Support the Physical Activity Guidelines through School-Based Strategies, Initiatives, and Programming

Meeting Description:
In March 2013, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in partnership with the President's Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition released the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans Midcourse Report: Strategies to Increase Physical Activity Among Youth. The report summarizes intervention strategies that can increase physical activity in youth ages 3-17 years across a variety of settings, including school, preschool and childcare, community, family and home, and primary health care. 

This webinar will provide an overview of the evidence-based programs and intervention strategies that have been shown to be effective in the school environment, share examples and resources for creating school-wide change from Let's Move! Active Schools, and highlight the Georgia SHAPE initiative, a comprehensive, statewide childhood obesity prevention effort dedicated to improving the health of young people. In addition, the webinar will briefly introduce new voluntary guidance for incorporating health criteria into school curriculum.
