National Prevention Strategy Adopts IHRSA Recommendation

The National Prevention Council’s recently released draft of the National Prevention and Health Promotion Strategy includes a recommendation made by IHRSA in October of last year, to incorporate health clubs as a valuable resource in increasing physical activity. 

The draft strategy includes increasing accessibility to, “parks and playgrounds, community centers, schools, fitness centers and outdoor recreation venues.” [Emphasis added]. These draft recommendations lay the groundwork for a national strategy to reduce obesity, chronic disease and help Americans live longer, healthier lives.
