About PAPH

The Physical Activity and Public Health (PAPH) Courses include an 8-day Postgraduate Course on Research Directions and Strategies and a 6-day Practitioner's Course on Community Interventions. The long-term goal of the courses is to improve the public's health by increasing the number of public health researchers and practitioners who have expertise in the relationship between physical activity and health in populations.

The Physical Activity and Public Health Courses have trained professionals in the field for 20 years and received the 2004 CDC Prevention Research Center Award for Excellence in Training and Technical Assistance.
