The American Kinesiology Association, with Wojtek Chodzko-Zajko as our Board of Director member, is enthusiastically participating as a member of the National Physical Activity Plan Alliance (NPAPA). During this past year the National Plan has been reviewed, updated, refined and expanded. The new plan was released on April 20, 2016 in Washington, D.C. at the National Press Club and Wojtek attended the event. Under Wojtek’s leadership the AKA has been active in helping to advance the physical activity agenda in the nation. Other contributions of AKA to the National Physical Activity Plan Alliance include working with organizational partners to encourage the Federal Government to increase funding to support evidence-based physical activity programing and strategies, planning for the next iteration of the Physical Activity Guidelines, and assisting with the Surgeons General’s Call to Action on Walking.
