President’s Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition
The President’s Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition (PCSFN) is a federal advisory committee that aims to promote healthy eating and physical activity for all Americans, regardless of background or ability. Since 1956, PCSFN has played an important role in educating Americans about the benefits of physical activity and healthy eating – and opportunities to make these healthy choices.
Some of PCSFN’s activities include:
- Presenting awards to individuals and organizations who have advanced the field of physical activity, sports, or nutrition promotion
- Sponsoring National Physical Fitness & Sports Month, a National Health Observance intended to inspire Americans to get active
- Partnering with the National Fitness Foundation, which was established to support PCSFN’s mission
