Listserv For Physical Activity Advocates

The Physical Activity and Public Health On-Line Network is a listserv advancing public health approaches to promoting physical activity by creating a national network of public health practitioners, researchers and interested others.

A listserv is a forum for electronic discussion. When a member sends a message to the listserv, it is e-mailed to all members of the list, and any member can reply. This is an excellent way to get advice from colleagues, to share successes, and to pass on new information. Listservs often have ongoing conversations about topics of interest, with many members participating.

To subscribe to this listserv, send an email to In the body of the e-mail type: SUBSCRIBE PHYS-ACT yourfirstname yourlastname, as in: "SUBSCRIBE PHYS-ACT Joe H. Smith". Alternatively, if you want to subscribe anonymously, send the command: "SUBSCRIBE PHYS-ACT Anonymous". Your subscription will then be hidden automatically.

NOTE: Do not include any other text in the message, including any electronic signature. Once you have subscribed to the listserv, you will be e-mailed a welcome message. Please save the e-mail for future reference.

To unsubscribe to this listserv, send an email to In the body of the e-mail type: SIGNOFF PHYS-ACT. Again, do not include any other text in the message.

There is no subscription cost for the listserv. If you have an e-mail filter in place that only allows messages from approved email addresses, please add to your approved list.
