Walking and other physical activities are vital for health, regardless of weight.
However, physical activity levels among Latinos are low, particularly among women.
Since 2008, the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans have served as the primary voice of the federal government for evidence-based guidance and recommendations for health professionals, schools, and policymakers on how everyone can improve their health through regular physical activity.
In 2016, the process to develop the second edition of the guidelines began. Salud America! followers also spoke up and shared their comments.
On Nov. 12, 2018, the 2nd Edition of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, will be released.
UPDATE: Check out the recap on Wakelet.
