Arthritis Interventions

Implementing Arthritis Interventions in Local Park and Recreation Agencies

Arthritis Foundation LogoThe National Recreation and Park Association is proud to partner with the Arthritis Foundation and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to implement the Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program (AFEP) and Walk with Ease (WWE) interventions through sub-awards to twenty-eight local park and recreation agencies. Through the first year of this initiative we expect that an additional 2,000 people will participate in these evidence-based programs. NRPA has developed the Ingredients For Success resource that highlights key successes, challenges, and lessons learned from grantees to encourage replication of the interventions in other local park and recreation agencies.
