Welcome to the Plan4Health blog!

This blog is meant to be a space to share relevant news, strategies and resources. We encourage you to comment and respond- we’d love to hear from the Plan4Health community.

Since many coalitions are working towards increasing physical activity within their communities, we wanted to share a recent post from our Sustainable Places blog. This post discusses the need for Safe Routes to Parks and includes a two-page fact sheet and webinar on what to consider when making safe routes to parks happen in your community.

Parks are a great way to encourage physical activity for residents, especially children (see below)! However, there is a need for safe access to these parks in order to receive the physical and mental benefits parks provide.

If you have stories or resources you’d like to share, feel free to write to Matt Makara at matt.makara@apha.org.
