This report summarizes the outcome of the National Blueprint Consensus Conference that was held in October 2002. At this conference, representatives of more than 50 national organizations convened in Washington DC with the goal of identifying high-priority and high-feasibility strategies that would advance the National Blueprint and that could be initiated within the next 12 to 24 months. The National Blueprint Consensus Conference has identified an ambitious agenda of 18 strategies that will need to be implemented in order to overcome societal barriers to physical activity among the middle-aged and older adult population. National organizations charged with the task of implementing the high-priority strategies will use professional networks, established delivery channels, and communication systems to translate the blueprint strategies into action.
