Superhighway or roadblock: Outlook for New Congress, Physical Activity, Policy and Advocacy

Major changes swept through Congress as a result of last November’s election. New faces and leadership have now been sworn in, and Congress is back in session. What are the implications for the future of advocating for physical activity and its co-benefits?

All of these questions will be addressed during the upcoming ACSM-sponsored webinar, “Superhighway or roadblock: Outlook for New Congress, Physical Activity, Policy and Advocacy.” Held on Monday, February 2 from 10:00-11:00 EST, this webinar will engage participants with a thorough discussion and expert presenters with insights into the new Congress.
