A 2018 guideline from the US Department of Health and Human Services provides information and guidance on the types and amounts of physical activity that provide substantial health benefits for multiple population groups. The recommendations emphasize that moving more and sitting less will benefit nearly everyone, and that individuals performing the least physical activity benefit most by even modest increases in moderate to vigorous physical activity.

Where CME credit is designated, the activity is part of the American Medical Association's accredited CME program. The AMA is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
