    The goal of Mall Walking: A Program Resource Guide (hereafter the Guide) is to encourage the development of mall walking programs by providing readers with information about the health benefits of walking, explaining why mall walking programs can help people walk more, and providing practical strategies for starting and maintaining walking programs in malls or other venues in areas where a mall is not available. The information in the Guide is based on a review of research on mall walking programs; environmental audits of malls and other venues with walking programs; and interviews conducted with walkers, program leaders, and managers in malls and other venues with walking programs.

    This Guide is meant to inform several types of stakeholders (or audiences). It is primarily for mall managers who want to start or enhance a mall walking program. However, it is also for others in the community, who want to partner with their community mall to either start a walking program, or use an existing program to help their constituencies (e.g., employees, patients, seniors) walk more. This can include aging services providers, community coalitions, work site managers, public health professionals, and hospitals and health care providers.

    Mall Walking: A Program Resource Guide is a product of the University of Washington Health Promotion Research Center, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Prevention Research Center, and was supported by Cooperative Agreement Number U48DP001911 from the CDC.
