Building Inclusive Healthy Communities through the National Center on Health, Physical Activity and Disability (NCHPAD)

Wed, 11 Jun, 2014 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Time Zone: America/New_York
Local Time: Wed, 11 Jun, 2014 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Presenter: Amy Rauworth - Director of Policy & Public Affairs at Lakeshore Foundation and Associate Director of NCHPAD.

A truly facilitating community is one in which health promotion activities (i.e., physical activity and nutrition) are as accessible to people with disabilities as they are to people without disabilities. Unfortunately, many people with disabilities or caregivers who have a child or family member with a disability have limited access to physical activity and healthy eating because of the substantially greater number of barriers they experience compared to people without disabilities in accessing programs, services and support systems. A well-planned “livable” community makes the right choice, the easy choice and includes people with disabilities.  Environmental barriers will be discussed and options to increase access to health promoting behaviors in the community will be provided.  Resources from the National Center on Health, Physical Activity and Disability (NCHPAD) will be described and information on the Inclusive Fitness Coalition will be shared.
