Equipping the Physical Activity Workforce for Breakthroughs in Public Health Research

  • Event Summary

    Researchers have demonstrated, and the public accepts, that physical activity protects against a multitude of poor health outcomes and that intervention can modify physical activity behavior. The ubiquity of powerful technology has created expectations for novel insights using complex data; however, the predominant methods of normal science beat researchers back into well-trodden cognitive and analytic models. How might we outfit ourselves for discovery in physical activity and public health?
