Alaskans Promoting Physical Activity

Alaskans Promoting Physical Activity (APPA) is a coalition representing a wide variety of organizations interested in promoting the benefits of regular physical activity.  Our mission is to increase physical activity among Alaskans by influencing policies, physical and social environments, and personal behaviors through health promotion, education, and advocacy efforts. Our goal is to improve health, fitness, and quality of life for all Alaskans.

To accomplish our mission and goal, APPA works to implement recommendations in the Take Heart Alaska Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Plan that involve physical activity.
