Here in New Mexico, Asian American and Pacific Islander adolescents ranked at the bottom when it came to getting the recommended minimum of 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity most days of the week.  In a community-led process, NANO, a network made up of diverse leaders from the Asian community, revitalized walking trails within the International District to promote the convenience of walking where people live, work and play.  A map of these walking trails has become a permanent fixture at Talin market, one of the main international grocery stores in Albuquerque.  The result makes staying active easier and, coupled with community education, has improved knowledge about the role of physical activity in prevention conditions like diabetes to over 14,000 Asian Americans in Albuquerque, particularly Asian American Adolescents.

Members for NANO includes the following:
