In 2010 a Plan was released outlining a set of policies, programs, and initiatives that aimed to achieve the vision that one day, all Americans will be physically active and they will live, work, and play in environments that facilitate regular physical activity. Much progress has been made and now it’s time to celebrate, evaluate, and collaborate on the next iteration of the Plan.
From February 23-24, 2015, the The NPAP Congress 2015 will bring together a diverse group of experts and key stakeholders — representing nine sectors — to review and revise the existing Plan. It is through experts, organizational partners, state liaisons and many individuals throughout the United States that the above vision becomes reality. The Congress will include more than 200 experts and leaders in the field of public health, including:
- All who support initiatives to increase physical activity in the U.S.
- Community Leaders
- Policy Makers
- Public Health Professionals
Attendees may expect:
- Keynote speakers & plenary sessions with experts in the field and key takeaways
- Poster Sessions highlighting initiatives related to the strategies in the National Physical Activity Plan
- Discussions and input to influence the next edition of an updated and prioritized National Physical Activity Plan, targeted for release in Fall 2015
- Champions Awards for groups and programs exemplifying the principles of the Plan
