The HHS Region IX Prevention Collaborative is pleased to inform you that Step It Up! The Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Promote Walking and Walkability will be released on September 9th with a live webcast event in Washington D.C. at 10 am Eastern. An archived version will be available for later viewing, approximately 1-2 weeks after the event.
We are passing along this information now so that you can start planning events and activities related to walking and walkable communities that will leverage and amplify the messages in the Call to Action. Remember that this effort will not end on September 9th! That date is only the beginning of a health promotion effort that will be maintained for a year or more.
If you are interested in learning how to use the Call to Action, register for this exclusive webinar hosted by America Walks on September 15th. Representatives from leading organizations will be joining the discussion and sharing how they plan to implement the Call to Action in their work.
Stay tuned for more information – and don’t forget, the Prevention Collaborative hosts 30 minute Wednesday Walks every week at 12:30!!
