Hi Everyone, my name is John Simmerman.
I’m a health promotion professional with over 30 years of experience
and my area of concentration has evolved into a specialization of
how the built environment influences human behavior related to
active living and especially active mobility.
As a little more background:
In 2012 I launched the non-profit Advocates for Healthy Communities
as an effort to help promote and create healthy, active places.
Since that time, I’ve been exploring, documenting, and profiling
established, emerging, and aspiring Active Towns wherever
they might be, in order to produce high-quality multi-media content
to help inspire the creation of more safe and inviting,
environments that promote
a “Culture of Activity” for “All Ages & Abilities”.
My primary platforms are my
Active Towns YouTube Channel and
my Active Towns Podcast: Conversations About Creating a Culture of Activity.
