  • Description:
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state health

    departments collaborate on a number of areas to prevent and control

    obesity and other chronic diseases. One of those areas is physical activity.

    These highlights focus on state health departments’ coordinated efforts

    to implement strategies that encourage increased physical activity. Story

    highlights include efforts around Complete Streets, Safe Routes to Schools,

    and worksite physical activity.

    The states were selected because their efforts include

    •• Comprehensive Change—activities enable the alteration of broader

    societal trends, and maintain or enhance physical environments in

    a state to support and provide more opportunities for people to be

    physically active.

    •• Collaboration—state health departments played a major role working

    with partners or local communities to move activities forward.

    •• Significant Reach—activities have the potential to affect a large

    proportion of the intended target population.

    •• Replicability/transportability—activities can be duplicated and similar

    effects can be achieved by other similar entities.

    •• Potential for sustainability—activities and effects can endure without

    continued financial and programmatic investment.
