Join the growing list of AFI partners

Posted June 19th, 2008

ACSM is grateful for the support we have received for the AFI program. AFI Health Promotion Partners have agreed to support the following guiding principles:

  • Overall health improvement in U.S. cities must focus on the prevention of behavioral-linked diseases by effectively addressing the underlying risk and community factors.
  • The rise in chronic diseases attributable to physical inactivity and unhealthy diets are a “clear and present danger” to our health and health care systems, our cities, our nation, and our future.
  • All of the cities in the U.S., irrespective of size and current health status, can make powerful advances in improving the health of their people through simple, affordable, effective steps.
  • There is a need for even more synergy and collaboration to assist U.S. cities in actively making the moves toward better health.

We already have a growing list of partners. Would you like for your organization to be among the first to support the AFI program? If so, please send an email to afi@acsm.org.
