How Government Action Can Impact Physical Inactivity in America -
America's current trend toward physical inactivity has actually been emerging for years, even decades. Similarly, reversing this trend will take years of focused and intensive effort on the part of all levels of our culture. NCPPA believes that governments at all levels need to encourage and provide incentives for people to take action - to improve their own health as well as for the overall health of our society. That is why NCPPA's legislative priorities have included both removing barriers to physically activity as well as adding economic and other incentives for Americans of all ages to engage in regular excercise programs and increasing their physical activity.
The NCPPA Policy Platform is a regularly updated depository for all federal physical activity policy and legislative initiatives that align with NCPPA's mission. Please click through the tabs below to view the Policy Platform and corresponding glossary.
