Step Into Cuba – Social Support for Physical Activity
Work together across sectors to implement campaigns to increase physical activity using highly visible, broad-based, multi-component strategies.
Creating or Improving Places for Physical Activity
Worksites, coalitions, agencies, and communities work together to change local environments to create opportunities for physical activity.
Individually Adapted Programs
Create programs that teach people behavioral skills to help them incorporate physical activity into their daily routines.
Built Environment Approaches
Social Support Interventions
We want to work with you and your group of interested community members to explore the evidence and come up with a plan for how to increase venues and social support and other strategies for physical activity in your specific community.
