This summer, the Southern Nevada Health District challenges everyone to become more physically active. Move Your Way is a physical activity campaign from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to promote the recommendations from the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans and encourage people to incorporate them into everyday life. Move Your Way has planners to help people stay on track to attain better fitness. The Southern Nevada Health District’s Get Healthy Clark County and Viva Saludable websites also offer free, online programs that can help increase physical activity. Online programs include Walk Around Nevada and Neon to Nature. Additional programs include tools and resources about healthy eating, nutritional information tips, smoking cessation, and resources to help maintain a healthier lifestyle.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a majority of adolescents and adults in Southern Nevadans do not meet physical activity guidelines, which contributes to physical activity related health disparities in the community. These disparities highlight the need for organized community-wide campaigns to encourage and provide physical activity opportunities among priority populations.
