Goals & Strategies

Our Sponsors



Get Active, Get Healthy L.A.!

To increase physical activity levels across communities in Los Angeles County in order to improve health and reduce the risk of chronic disease

To develop relationships among Los Angeles community stakeholders to promote the importance of physical activity and to mobilize community-level action


What is Get Active, Get Healthy L.A.!

On February 24, 2010, more than 100 partners from multiple sectors (business, academic, non-profit, etc) convened to collaborate and develop a plan to increase county-wide physical activity.  This county-wide physical activity plan will be developed by consensus, have universal appeal across sectors, and contain measurable indicators.  In the two years following this summit, these stakeholders will re-convene to demonstrate their commitment to implementing adopted strategies and share resources to help execute the strategies.
