    The new CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report examines trends in meeting physical activity guidelines.

    Bottom line: More adults are moving but not enough.

    Urban and rural communities can implement evidence-based approaches, including improved community design, improved access to indoor and outdoor recreation facilities, social support programs, and community-wide campaigns to make physical activity the safe and easy choice for persons of all ages and abilities. Incorporating culturally appropriate strategies into local programs might help address differences across subgroups.

    It’s an ongoing challenge to convey the connection between environmental change and improvements for people in their day-to-day lives. The graphic below does a good job of connecting the dots between the built environment and physical activity. Are there other infographics/resources folks have that illustrate this point?
