Celebrate National Walking Day with UCLA Health and the American Heart Association. On Wednesday, April 6, UCLA will join millions of Americans as they pledge to live a healthier lifestyle and get physically active.
Physical inactivity is a huge problem facing our nation. About 70% of Americans struggle with maintaining a healthy weight and don’t get enough physical activity. Let’s unite, UCLA and help each other live longer, stronger, healthier lives.
