The Untold Health Equity: The Commit to Inclusion and the Guidelines to Disability Inclusion in Physical Activity, Nutrition, and Obesity Programs and Policies
People with disabilities are showing the highest levels of health inequity, likely because of lack of inclusion in health promotion programs. This webinar will cover the newly introduced Guidelines to Disability Inclusion in Physical Activity, Nutrition, and Obesity Programs and Policies and the Commit to Inclusion campaign that promotes the Guidelines. The Guidelines were created with an expert panel using criteria to qualify each guideline. They are intended for any organization that provides physical activity nutrition, or obesity programs or policies.
