Earlier this month, the University of South Carolina hosted the Physical Activity and Public Health Courses in Columbia, SC. The courses consisted of an 8-day Postgraduate Course on Research Directions and Strategies and a 6-day Practitioner’s Course on Community Interventions. There were 39 Research Course participants and 13 Practitioners.

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.

2016 marked the 20th year of successful training for professionals in the field. The next course will be held in 2018.
