Physical Activity and Public Health

This volume of the Health Education Monograph Series focuses on the role of physical activity within public health.  Physical activity is a modifiable behavior which has been shown to have a direct impact on health and quality of life.  The eight articles in this issue hope to raise awareness of the positive benefits of physical activity within diverse populations, address critical issues surrounding the promotion of physical activity, and suggest non-traditional approaches to impacting activity.
