ICAPA Partners2


The International Coalition for Aging and Physical Activity (ICAPA) is an international not-for-profit group of researchers and practitioners that promotes the study of active aging; the enhanced delivery of services to older adults; and the collection, dissemination, and discussion of information to help professionals further their work.

If your organization focuses on the study of aging or delivers programs and services to older adults, please consider joining ICAPA. It’s free; there are no dues, but member organizations must be willing to participate in the Active Aging Community Center because the Coalition works through the AACC to accomplish its goals.

Active for Life


Physical inactivity is one of the greatest modifiable threats to health and functional independence in later life. To learn more about conducting effective behavioral programs related to physical activity, Active for Life takes research-based programs, introduces them into community settings, provides structured social marketing support, and conducts independent evaluation to measure effectiveness. The program looks at practical aspects of program delivery in a variety of community-based settings such as faith-based groups, health departments, hospitals, and community centers.

The Active for Life National Program Office was established at The Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Rural Public Health in College Station, Texas. Funding comes from a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation grant.
