Physical Activity Guidelines: A Letter to Congress

Boy playing Please help support the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans Act!  This bill would direct the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to prepare and promote physical activity guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence at least every ten years.  It would also require HHS to publish a midcourse report every five years highlighting best practices and continuing issues relating to physical activity.

Given the strong base of science and medicine that shows the benefits of exercise, every American needs to know the current physical activity recommendations to promote health and combat obesity.

The image posted below is a copy of the letter written by Representatives Kind and Schock asking that members of Congress join them in support of H.R. 2179, the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans Act, by co-sponsoring the legislation.

You can help support this important legislation by contacting your senators and representatives and asking them to co-sponsor the bill.

Thank you for your help!
