NCCOR Plans an Exciting Line-Up of Events at APHA 2022!
November 2, 2022
Join NCCOR from November 6-9th at the American Public Health Association’s (APHA) Annual Meeting in Boston. This year’s theme, 150 Years of Creating the Healthiest Nation: Leading the Path Toward Equity, celebrates APHA’s legacy of public health leadership and a shared commitment to advancing public health equity.
NCCOR will be in-person at this year’s conference. You can join us by:
- Attend a panel discussion featuring NCCOR’s newest resource. Dr. Angie Cradock will present How-to Resources to Create Thriving, Activity-Friendly Communities: Making the Case for Improving the Built Environment (#5147) during a panel discussion titled Built-Environment and Active Transportation to Enhance Physical Activity. The session will demonstrate how NCCOR’s newest tool can help communities advance public health equity and create environments where all people can thrive. The session will take place on Wednesday, November 9, from 12:30-2:00 pm in the Westin Commonwealth A room, Concourse Level.
- Take a walk! Get fresh air, exercise, and new ideas for promoting physical activity! Join nationally recognized physical activity expert Mark Fenton as he leads a walk through Boston’s Seaport District. Mark will highlight features of the built environment that either promote or discourage active transportation. The walk will take place on Wednesday, November 9, from 10:00-11:30 am and we will meet inside, near the door in the north lobby at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. This is a free event and open to all fitness levels.
- Visit the NCCOR booth. Stop by booth #G-24 in the exhibit hall from November 6-8. NCCOR staff will be there to answer your questions about our tools and resources. We’ll also have our newest Guides, jump ropes, and water bottles. Be sure to tell your friends and colleagues who may be new to NCCOR!
