The U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) endorses Step It Up!, the U.S. Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Promote Walking and Walkable Communities. USCM urges cities to develop initiatives and programs that respond to the Call to Action.
Many mayors already use Move with the MayorTM (MWTM), developed by the National Forum for Heart Disease & Stroke Prevention, to encourage people to walk and live active, healthy lifestyles.
Now the Move with the MayorTM / Step it Up! Success Roadmap blends elements of both initiatives, to help you identify and strengthen your city’s programs and policies to improve health, including:
- strengths in promoting heart health by answering the U.S. Surgeon General’s Call to Action and through MWTM; and
- opportunities to make it possible for more people to live healthy lives.
By completing this roadmap you will determine your city’s Step it Up! score. The National Forum will also use your scores to help improve our future MWTM programming in your city.
