  • New in 2022: Stand Up! (Stand Up and Move More) Research shows that excessive sedentary behavior (or 'sitting time') has been linked to serious health consequences. In fact, too much sitting time is equivalent to smoking 15 cigarettes per day! The Stand Up & Move More program (also known as Stand Up) gives you strategies to do just that - stand up and move more!
