Commit to Inclusion at the Health Matters Summit!
The Health Matters Annual Activation Summit 2015 was held earlier this week. This is an annual event that showcases what the Clinton Foundation’s Health Matters Initiative and its strategic partners from across sectors – business, technology, sports and philanthropy – are doing to create systemic health improvement throughout the United States. A current focus of the Health Matters Initiative is on improving access to youth sport and physical activity. As a collaborative effort to address this matter, the Aspen Institute’s Project Play was launched. After two years of 10 roundtables, over 250 thought leaders, and other events around the nation, on January 26, 2015, The Project Play initiative released a 50-page report, Sport for All, Play for Life: A Playbook to Get Every Kid in the Game.

This report, “offers an ambitious plan to re-imagine organized youth sports, prioritizing health and inclusion, while recognizing the benefits of unstructured play,” says Tom Farrey in the introduction.
