The National Academy of Sciences is a private, nonprofit, self-perpetuating society of distinguished scholars engaged in scientific and engineering research, dedicated to the furtherance of science and technology and to their use for the general welfare. Upon the authority of the charter granted to it by the Congress in 1863, the Academy has a mandate that requires it to advise the federal government on scientific and technical matters. Dr. Ralph J. Cicerone is president of the National Academy of Sciences. The National Academy of Engineering was established in 1964, under the charter of the National Academy of Sciences, as a parallel organization of outstanding engineers. It is autonomous in its administration and in the selection of its members, sharing with the National Academy of Sciences the responsibility for advising the federal government. The National Academy of Engineering also sponsors engineering programs aimed at meeting national needs, encourages education and research, and recognizes the superior achievements of engineers. Dr. Wm. A. Wulf is president of the National Academy of Engineering. The Institute of Medicine was established in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences to secure the services of eminent members of appropriate professions in the examination of policy matters pertaining to the health of the public. The Institute acts under the re- sponsibility given to the National Academy of Sciences by its congressional charter to be an adviser to the federal government and, upon its own initiative, to identify issues of medical care, research, and education. Dr. Harvey V. Fineberg is president of the Institute of Medicine. The National Research Council was organized by the National Academy of Sciences in 1916 to associate the broad community of science and technology with the Academyâs purposes of furthering knowledge and advising the federal government. Functioning in accordance with general policies determined by the Academy, the Council has become the principal operating agency of both the National Academy of Sciences and the Na- tional Academy of Engineering in providing services to the government, the public, and the scientific and engineering communities. The Council is administered jointly by both Academies and the Institute of Medicine. Dr. Ralph J. Cicerone and Dr. Wm. A. Wulf are chair and vice chair, respectively, of the National Research Council. www.national-academies.org

Independent Report Reviewers This workshop summary has been reviewed in draft form by indi- viduals chosen for their diverse perspectives and technical expertise, in accordance with procedures approved by the National Research Coun- cilâs Report Review Committee. The purpose of this independent review is to provide candid and critical comments that will assist the institution in making its published summary as sound as possible and to ensure that the summary meets institutional standards for objectivity, evidence, and responsiveness to the study charge. The review comments and draft manuscript remain confidential to protect the integrity of the deliberative process. We wish to thank the following individuals for their review of this summary: I-MIN LEE, Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, MA JAMES R.

Acknowledgments The collective efforts of many individuals made it possible to plan and conduct the Institute of Medicine (IOM) workshop on the Adequacy of Evidence for Physical Activity Guidelines Development and to pre- pare this workshop summary within a very short time frame. We are grateful for the assistance of many individuals. RADM Penelope Slade- Royall from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Public Health and Science, Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (DHHS, OPHS, ODPHP) secured DHHS resources to sponsor this effort. CAPT Richard Troiano and Jennifer Tucker from ODPHP, Melissa Johnson from the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, and Harold W. (Bill) Kohl III from the Centers for Disease Con- trol and Prevention provided useful suggestions in planning the work- shop. Members of the planning committee (Bill Haskell, Rodney Dishman, Joseph Donnelly, Bruce Jones, and Miriam Nelson) provided invaluable input in planning the workshop agenda and speakers and pro- vided feedback on specific issues related to the written summaries of the presentations. The session speakers prepared insightful presentations, and the discussants were instrumental in identifying areas of controversy and providing supplementary information. The moderators kept the pre- senters and discussants on task and synthesized the evidence presented in the closing session. We also appreciate the oversight for the National Academiesâ review process provided by Bronwyn Schrecker Jamrock and Clyde Behney, skillful copyediting by Mark Goodin, formatting by Judy Estep, manuscript preparation and reference checks conducted by Shannon Wisham, and the careful review and oversight of the report production process by Lara Andersen, Sally Stanfield, and others at the National xi
xii ACKNOWLEDGMENTS Academies Press. We also thank Linda Meyers, Director of the Food and Nutrition Board; Rose Marie Martinez, Director of the Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice; Anton Bandy, Financial Associate; and Shannon Wisham, Research Associate, for assistance. Special thanks are extended to Geraldine Kennedo, Administrative Assistant, for her skillful logistical coordination of the workshop. Carol West Suitor and Vivica I. Kraak, Rapporteurs
