The Department of Health and Human Services is the Federal government's principal agency for protecting the health of all Americans and providing essential human services, especially to those who are least able to help themselves.
Fiscal Year 2016: In FY 2016, the Council proposed a partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to incorporate Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA+) and Presidential Champions into the USDA SuperTracker interactive platform. Incorporation of the PALA+ and Presidential Champions programs into SuperTracker was completed in March 2017. In FY 2016, the PCFSN exceeded its goal of implementing the I Can Do It, You Can Do It! (ICDI) program in 100 sites by 2018. ICDI also recruited and trained more than 200 stakeholders in schools and communities to help facilitate health promotion programs that serve people with disabilities. The PCFSN continued to promote the Presidential Youth Fitness Program (PYFP), administered by the Council's congressionally-chartered foundation, the National Foundation on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition (NFFSN). PYFP provides a model for fitness education that includes a health-related fitness assessment, educational tools and recognition items to support a quality physical education curriculum. In FY 2016, the Council promoted the release of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans to encourage the adoption of nutritious eating habits to reduce obesity and prevent chronic diseases like Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease In honor of 60th Anniversary of the PCFSN, the Council launched the #0to60 initiative to inspire all Americans to lead a healthy, active lifestyle. Through the initiative, the Council engaged parents and caregivers, educators, partners and other audiences to celebrate and promote participation in physical activity programs, as well as setting and reaching their healthy eating goals. The Council worked with national and local partners to develop a strategy to cross-promote #0to60 messaging to diverse consumer audiences. Fiscal Year 2017: In FY 2017, the PCFSN continued to enhance and expand its physical activity and nutrition programs, including ICDI, PALA+, Presidential Champions, and Sports for All. In addition, the Council will focus on promoting its 60th Anniversary through the #0to60 public engagement campaign, to inspire Americans of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to be active and eat healthy every day. In addition, the Council will continue its promotion of the PYFP, administered by the NFFSN. The Council continues to address health disparities and improve disability inclusion in physical activity and sports through the expansion and evaluation of its ICDI program. ICDI facilitates and encourages opportunities for all Americans, regardless of ability or age, to lead a healthy lifestyle that includes regular physical activity and good nutrition. The original goal of ICDI when it was established in 2013 was to facilitate access and opportunities for children and adults with disabilities in at least 100 sites across the nation by 2018, adding at least 20 sites each year. In FY 2017, ICDI accomplishments included: 1) Establishing 131 ICDI sites in 36 states, impacting 400,000 individuals with disability and their families. 2) Securing a partnership with the HHS Office on Women?s Health to leverage ICDI as a vehicle to engage more girls and women with disabilities in physical activity and sport opportunities, which will begin in FY 2018. Also in FY 2017, PCFSN entered into a partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture?s Center for Nutrition Policy & Promotion to integrate the PALA+ and Presidential Champions programs into the SuperTracker physical activity and food tracking tool. SuperTracker impacts millions of registered users in all 50 U.S. states and territories, and provides the PCFSN with the opportunity to expand the tracking capabilities for both programs, provide a mobile-ready interface, and ensure compliance with Section 508, making each program more accessible and engaging to a greater number of Americans of all ages and abilities. In collaboration with HHS? Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Institutes of Health, the PCFSN is co-leading the development of the second edition of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans (PAG), which is expected to be released at the end of CY 2018. The PAG is an essential resource for health professionals and policymakers. They serve as the primary, authoritative voice of the federal government for evidence-based strategies for the public, as well as healthcare providers, policymakers, communities, schools and other key stakeholders to promote physical activity and health lifestyles for Americans. Additional information on the Council?s programs and initiatives can be found on the PCFSN website: www.fitness.gov. Fiscal Year 2018: In FY 2018, the PCFSN will advance HHS? childhood obesity prevention priority, in particular, through the enhancement and promotion of new and existing physical activity and nutrition programs, including ICDI, PALA+, and Presidential Champions. In FY 2018, PCFSN will ramp up its efforts to educate, engage, and empower all Americans, especially youth in the school and community settings, to lead an active, healthy lifestyle. In addition, PCFSN will deploy its Council members as leaders in the fields of sport, fitness and nutrition to encourage all Americans to prioritize their health and to support efforts in communities across America to improve fitness and healthy eating opportunities for all children and families. The PCFSN will continue to work with the ODPHP to lead the development of the second edition of the PAG.. In addition to the coordination of the PAG Advisory Committee, the PCFSN will also implement and expand key programs and initiatives that support the PAG, and promote the widespread adoption of the 2018 PAG when released. This effort will include a national outreach strategy to promote the recommendations of the 2018 PAG. In FY2018, in partnership with the HHS Office on Women?s Health, the PCFSN will expand opportunities for women and girls with disability through ICDI. Activities will include: 1) Identifying and coordinating with national organizations that serve girls and women with and without disabilities to increase opportunities for girls and women with disabilities to participate in the ICDI program 2) Supporting strategic outreach and engagement via a communications campaign to promote the importance of equal access of opportunities for women and girls with disabilities in physical activity, fitness, and sports; increase the visibility of girls and women athletes with disability; share resources with stakeholders to simplify program implementation; and encourage all women and girls, with an emphasis on those with disability, to lead healthy, active lives.
