Active for Life - Increasing Physical Activity Levels in Adults Age 50 and Older!
About the Program


Learning networkActive for Life Learning Network

The Active for Life National Program Office is exploring the feasibility of providing an interactive Learning Network through which health, research, wellness and public health professionals can address issues, contribute to the development of programs and share information related to science-based information and initiatives on aging, physical activity and nutrition.

Five concepts are being developed as part of the initial planning phase of this initiative.

  • Forums involving leaders, experts and stakeholders to gain their insights and exchange ideas regarding topics related to aging, physical activity and nutrition

  • Supporting collaboration and dialog between health, government and trade organizations that address physical activity and aging issues

  • Identifying and evaluating tools that can be used by community-based organizations who wish to implement physical activity programs targeted to mature audiences

  • Conducting an environmental scan to determine the viability of developing a ListServ and/or Web-based discussion group related to physical activity/aging/nutrition issues

  • Conducting a needs assessment to determine what types of technical assistance might be most useful for professionals and organizations interested in implementing and/or sustaining programs related to physical activity and/or nutrition targeted to a mid-life and older population.
