NCPPA is the featured this week as the guest blogger on the US Department of Health and Human Services Be Active Your Way blog. The topic of NCPPA's post is Innovative Physical Activity Joint Use Agreements. The discussion revolves aroundinnovative Joint Use Agreements (looking beyond the traditional school/park & recreation) to increase physical activity spaces in communities.
The blog's purpose is to encourage dialog among professionals who work on Physical Activity promotion about how they can encourage Americans to get the physical activity they need based on the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. HHS designed the blog as a forum where professionals can learn from and connect with each others promoting physical activity and the Guidelines as a way to share successes and lessons learned – both through blog post content and comments reacting to them.
