Tell Your Senators and Member of Congress That Fitness Is Essential

It's Time for the Federal Government to Prioritize Americans' Health and Fitness

Americans’ health is worse than ever, and that’s why I’m asking you today to include language in the appropriations bill for the CDC to recognize fitness as essential. Rates of chronic diseases like obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart disease are at all-time highs. The pandemic showed that chronic disease leaves tens of millions of Americans vulnerable. The government needs to recognize the urgency of getting as many Americans as possible fit and healthy.
