In this course, participants develop a logic model for evidence-based efforts to improve health through physical activity. Topics include needs assessment, models for physical activity promotion, “best practice” interventions, policy and environmental supports for physical activity, program evaluation, partnership development, and current research on physical activity promotion. Participants learn how to select, plan, and implement physical activity promotion programs in communities. The course emphasizes careful planning, program evaluation, and outcome measurement. The course uses multiple formats including lectures with ample question and answer time, interaction with experts, consultation sessions, and a team field project. Each year 25 participants are selected from a pool of applicants.

Audience
The course is intended for public health practitioners who are involved or interested in community-based initiatives to promote physical activity.

Duration
6 days, as arranged with administrator (see contact information).
