MPH student Alyssa McGraw Assists with Health and Human Services Move Your Way Campaign
Move Your Way is a campgain designed by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) to promote the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. ODPHP recently partnered with RecWell to adapt the campaign specifically for University of Maryland students Alyssa McGraw (advisor Shannon Jette), a student in the MPH-Physical Activity program, administered the questionnaire used for measuring the impact of the adapted Move Your Way campaign. In a recent blog post, ODPHP reports that "of the 129 students who completed the survey, 46.8 percent said they had seen, heard, or read about the Move Your Way campaign. Nearly half reported getting the recommended amount of moderate-intensity aerobic activity every week or almost every week, and more than 40 percent said they get the recommended amount of muscle-strengthening activity every week or almost every week."
