Physical Activity is Important for Adults Who Have Disabilities
Weekly Series: A Cup of Health with CDC Podcast

In the United States more than a fourth of the adults with disabilities are physically inactive. Regimens tailored to their needs provide many health benefits but barriers to participating in fitness activities such as inadequate space, facilities, and equipment still exist. CDC funds projects in 16 states to promote the health and well being of people with disabilities. Eliminating participation barriers to health promotion services is critical to helping them achieve their optimal health.
