Announcement: Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, 2nd edition


Planning is underway for the 2nd edition of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans (PAG)!

The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is leading this effort. We are working in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition (PCFSN).

The 2nd edition of the PAG is expected to be released in 2018! The 1st edition of the PAG was released in 2008, followed in 2013 by the Midcourse Report, which focused on strategies to increase physical activity in youth. These strategies have informed the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, Let’s Move! programs, national public health objectives in Healthy People 2020, and physical activity data collection and monitoring.

HHS is seeking nominations to serve on the 2018 PAG Advisory Committee. See the Federal Register Notice for more information.

Spread the word! Encourage others to join the PAG Supporter Network for email updates on the development of this exciting initiative.
