Join the new Physical Activity Interest Group for Extension Professionals!

Last year, the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) collaborated with Connect Extension on a webinar, Increasing Physical Activity Among Older Adults. To continue the conversation and connect with more Extension professionals, we created a Physical Activity Interest Group on Connect Extension.

This group is for Extension professionals, community partners, and other affiliated professionals whose work involves physical activity promotion or programming, or anyone who is interested in learning more about physical activity! Group members can engage with others, exchange ideas and resources, and ask questions about promoting physical activity in their community.

We’re excited to have this new space to connect! We hope you’ll join the group and encourage you to share about the work you’re doing in your community.
