Maryland Walkability Virtual Academy Launched in Maryland 

Planning in Progress 

The Maryland Department of Health (MDH), in partnership with the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD), is launching the Maryland Walkability Virtual Academy (Maryland WVA). The Maryland WVA is designed to prepare interdisciplinary teams from Maryland communities to pursue policy, systems, and environmental supports for walking and walkability.

This virtual academy will provide teams with the most up-to-date academic and applied learning methods and will reinforce and support implementation of significant national public health policy statements promoting walking and walkability.  

As part of the program, MDH and NACDD are seeking applicant teams willing to commit to all project deliverables, such as the appointment of an interdisciplinary team of community and professional experts, participation in all Maryland WVA sessions, and the development of a team action plan.  

To learn more about this exciting opportunity to promote walkability, please visit the Maryland Walk Academy Information Page or join the webinar on October 4 at 11:00 am
