The National Coalition for Promoting Physical Activity is joining with two other nonprofit organizations addressing physical activity to for a new organization.
Physical activity continues to be a major health concern and has been described as pandeminc. For this reason, the National Coalition for Promoting Physical Activity, the National Physical Activity Society, and the National Physical Activity Plan Alliance are meging into on physical activity collaborative (yet to be named) that can build on the base established over the past years and that will invite the community of the many organizations/coalitions with a concern for the problem to coordinate their effors, financial committments, and in-kind resources. The new collaborative will bring these multiple stakeholders in the physical activity community together to be impactful in policy, systems, and environment change.
The NCPPA Board of Directors voted to move forward with the merge in Fall 2019. Stay tuned for more information about the launch of the new organization.
