Washington Post

U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy will call Wednesday for a national campaign centered on walking, an effort he said is intended to combat chronic disease and obesity, and to surmount obstacles that stand in the way of simply taking a walk. Murthy said the government will partner with schools, nonprofit organizations and the private sector to promote walking at home, at school and in the workplace.
