"I've been waiting my entire public health career to see the science of exercise and physical activity translated and scaled up to the community level so elegantly and effectively. The cultural wave of change in how communities adopt an active lifestyle begins now with 3WINS Fitness!" – Dr. Loretta DiPietro, Professor, Exercise and Nutrition Sciences Department, Milken Institute School of Public Health

On March 21st, 2019, The Department of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences at the George Washington University (GWU) Milken Institute School of Public Health will host a seminar in conjunction with 3 WINS Fitness: a free, sustainable, replicable and scalable exercise, falls prevention, and diabetes prevention program. This nationally recognized program is led by California State University, Northridge (CSUN) Kinesiology faculty and students who deliver exercise for all fitness levels and include both falls and diabetes prevention at six sites (parks, churches, schools) for over 400 participants. Their 3 WINS are: empowered participants, empowered students, and improved community health. During this event, you’ll learn about the 3 WINS Fitness model and how it fits into national frameworks such as the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions Active People, Healthy Nation framework, the National Physical Activity Plan, and Prescription for Activity. Afterward, a discussion with stakeholders around opportunities to scale the program across the nation will take place.
