Physical Inactivity Home Page

Physical Activity and Fitness was the subject of a Surgeon General's Report and is a major area of concern for Healthy People 2010. Preliminary estimates (see "Contribution to overall disease burden in SF" link on right) suggest that physical inactivity could be as important as tobacco as a local public health concern.

A CDC-funded project has identified specific public health interventions that work to improve physical inactivity (see "What can be done?" link on right).
