Dear AJPM&R Readers,

The lead article of this issue of the AJPM&R is the "DeLisa Lecture of 2017".  The topic of this article is relevant to our specialty and of significant impact given the number of persons with disabilities in the world; approximately 15% of the world's population.  The importance of physical activity and exercise goes beyond the practice of competitive sports that can be part of the lives of a relatively small number of individuals. This is particularly true in low income countries.  Physical activity must be promoted as a public health intervention because it has many benefits and very few side effects. Further, the cost of physical acttivity programs is low.  It is an intervention that should be part of all rehabilitation efforts at all levels of care, particularly in primary care and at the level of the community.
