CDC's Mall Walking Guide -- A How-To for Encouraging Healthy Behaviors in our Communities
What’s On Your Mind?: 

This guide from the CDC provides information about the health benefits of walking, explaining why mall walking programs can help people walk more, and providing practical strategies for starting and maintaining walking programs in malls or other venues in areas where a mall is not available.

Any health department seeking to encourage low-cost / free physical activity for their community residents would benefit from reviewing this guide. Do you already lead a mall walking program in your community? Share your lessons learned and best practices!
