The Physical Activity Section was created as a Special Primary Interest Group (SPIG) in 2009. Our goals are to:

  • Provide a credible and visible home within APHA for physical activity  practitioners,  researchers,  advocates, and  partners
  • Implementing annual meeting activities to meet the needs of professional and student members
  • Enhance the development and dissemination of evidence-based practice and practice-based evidence
  • Facilitate the inclusion of physical activity in public health policy and advocacy.

The PA Section greatly appreciates ongoing support from the following sponsors:

  • Active Living Research
  • New Lifestyles
  • Human Kinetics
