This is a required CDC Grant Outcome. 

Story Behind the Curve

Successes: What is Helping?

The CDC Arthritis Grant leverages the AAA network to connect with statewide partners and initiatives in order to provide the AAEBIs of Walk With Ease, Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, Chronic Pain Self-Management Program, Enhance Fitness, and Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention.

By coordinating access to training opportunities and resources, the CDC Arthritis Grant expands Walk With Ease program sites and certified leaders, creates a statewide self-directed Walk With Ease portal for NC state employees, and recruits Chronic Disease Self-Management Program Master Trainers.

Challenges: What is Hurting?

There is interest in AAEBIs, but agency and community capacity to provide them consistently and sustainably is an ongoing challenge. In 2016, 34% reported being physically inactive; in 2017, 35.7% in 2019 33.3%. This self-reported health measure is affected by a complex array of factors.
