SWAP School Walkability Action Project

This presentation is part of the It Takes a Village: Vital Elements of a Healthy Community session.

Loma Linda University Community Health Development, school nurses, and Department of Pediatrics created a network of two walking loops per elementary school San Bernardino County.  The objective was to provide an option of thirty minutes of physical activity from the doorstep of each school. The Center for Disease Control Walkability Toolkit was adapted and two walking loops were mapped and scored.  In addition Wellness elements were GIS mapped surrounding each school, e.g. medical/dental clinics, fresh foods, markets, pharmacies, parks.
