An exciting addition to this year's conference is the Move Your Way campaign! We want to know how you stay active! Do you walk your dog every day? Do you enjoy gardening? Do you make sure to stretch throughout the day? Or, do you get moving to do the daily chores? We want to know how you Move Your Way! The Move Your Way campaign is the promotional campaign for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. Most Americans do not get the recommended 150 minutes of weekly, moderate intensity activity. ODP wants to help its populations develop healthy movement habits that assist in combating future disease such as Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and some cancers.
During the conference, we will be encouraging attendees to Move Your Way with scheduled group activities like walks around the hotel grounds, sharing your movement routine through the conference app boards, regular session stretch breaks, and more! Be sure to visit the Move Your Way table in the exhibit hall to receive a special goodie bag!
