The Physical Activity and Public Health Course (PAPH), sponsored by the
University of South Carolina Prevention Research Center and the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention, is entering its 12th year of
successful training for researchers and public health practitioners.
The PAPH Course offerings feature an eight-day Postgraduate Course on
Research Directions and Strategies and a six-day Practitioner's Course
on Community Interventions. The faculty for the courses is composed of
nationally recognized experts in public health research and
practice. The Research Course serves post-doctoral
personnel and is designed to develop research competencies related to
physical activity and public health. The Practitioner's Course is
for those professionally involved or interested in public health
interventions to promote physical activity.
Approximately 25 fellows are accepted for each course. Criteria
for acceptance include educational background, experience, professional
position, and potential to enhance public health research and
practice. The 2006 Physical Activity and Public Health
Courses will be held September 12-20, 2006 at The Lodge at the Mountain
Village in Park City, Utah.
