MOVE is a VA program to promote healthy lifestyle changes in veterans. We all know that increasing physical activity is an important part of improving health and well being. The general recommendation is to engage in moderate activity for 30 minutes or more for 5 or more days per week or vigorous activity for 20 minutes or more 3 or more days a week, but how many of us really get around to doing it.
Health care providers at the Washington DC VA Medical Center will help you "Get on the MOVE". Through this program they are offering pedometers and scales, nutritional counseling and lots of encouragement. Would you like to feel and look better? Then "Get on the MOVE". Enrolled veterans, contact your primary care provider and ask how you can join the MOVE program.
