ACSM Supports $125M for Crucial CDC Wellness Division

May 5, 2022

ACSM, through its membership in the Physical Activity Alliance, has reached out to the leadership of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee for Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies with a request to allocate $125M for the CDC’s Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity (DNPAO) for Fiscal Year 2023.

The DNPAO promotes active living and healthy eating across the nation; as we continue to deal with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, improving the health and well-being of our citizens is of the utmost importance and rightfully deserves our investment. Further, the DNPAO’s programs could substantially reduce health care costs nationwide.
