In April 2017, the Status Report for Step It Up! The Surgeon Generalâ??s Call to Action to Promote Walking and Walkable Communities was released. The Call to Action provided a clear road map for partners across all sectors to improve walking and walkability for all Americans. The Status Report summarizes the state of walking and walkability when the Call to Action was released, as well as selected activities done since the release to sustain the messages and promote the goals established by the Surgeon General. The objective of this presentation is to summarize the key findings from the Status Report, including success stories from partners in the field who are taking action to promote the goals of the Call to Action. Who are the calls for? This call series is intended for state and local health departments and partners who are actively supporting physical activity strategies in community design.
