Investing in Physical Activity
Creating an Active America Together
When: Thursday, May 18, 2017 from 9:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
Where: 1310 Longworth House Office Building, Washington DC

Physical inactivity continues to impose an enormous burden to our health care system, economy, national security and the health of the American people. A significant federal investment in actions to promote physical activity and physical fitness would improve population health, reduce suffering from chronic disease, reverse soaring medical costs, improve labor productivity and military readiness, and increase our children’s academic performance in schools. Join us for this briefing as we discuss the importance of a comprehensive effort to increase physical activity in the United States.
