MPH in Physical Activity

What can you, as a professional in physical activity, do to prevent disease, prolong life and promote human health?

It seems simple – our bodies are designed to move, and movement is good for us.

But there’s more to that statement than you might think.

What motivates people to move? What obstacles do communities have to engage in physical activity? How does a lack of physical activity affect different populations? What can you, as a professional in physical activity, do to prevent disease, prolong life and promote human health?

Go deeper into the science of physical activity and its application in populations with this new option of the Master of Public Health degree.
