Despite annual New Year's resolutions, weight-loss and regular physical activity continue to be goals that many Americans find hard to reach. With skyrocketing obesity rates, this personal concern is also a growing public health problem. The good news: there is a body of research showing us what does work. Join Dr. Lloyd Novick for a discussion on evidence-based approaches to physical activity promotion.
As a result of this program, participants will be able
- describe at least one evidence-based effort to promote physical activity.
