Walking and Public Health: Research Insights into the Value of Active Living

Smart Growth Network "Walktober Walkinar" Series

[Virtual]

Participants of this live webinar are eligible for 1.5 AICP CM credits

Walking is the most common leisure-time physical activity in the U.S.  With the advent of pedometers, other wearable devices and phone applications that enable walkers to quantify and monitor their steps, attention has focused on the number of steps needed daily to improve health.  Pedro Saint-Maurice, Ph.D., of the National Cancer Institute will share recent findings from these great new data sources.

Discussions about health and wellness also have looked at a broader set of tools and approaches.  Dhruti M. Patel, MD, of the University of Maryland Extension, will share the benefits of mindfulness in our everyday lives, from stress relief to fitness and mindful eating to how these approaches can fit together to improve public health.
