According to the Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy, “Walkable communities are good for social connectedness, good for business, good for the environment, and, most importantly, good for our personal health.” But walkable communities are not the norm for millions of Americans, especially those living in low-resource neighborhoods. This contributes greatly to our nation’s sedentary culture and health inequities. In this webinar, presenter Tom Richards, ACE director of corporate engagement, will explore the crucial role that fitness professionals and health advocates can play in advocating for walkable, healthier communities.
You will learn:
- The benefits of walkable communities
- Why the walkability movement needs fitness champions and health advocates
- How our transportation system discourages pedestrian travel
- The connection between walkable communities and social justice
- How to advocate for walkability in your community

Resources provided in the course are excellent. I also look forward to accessing the two ACE guides on walkability.
I watched the presentation, which was moderately interesting, and passed the quiz. However, the quiz contained questions that weren't even powerpoint slides, just random facts not even worth putting on a presentation slide. The quiz didn't correlate well with the presentation.
Very interesting; intersection with policy was a major plus.
