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 offering training for researchers and public health practitioners. The PAPH course offerings feature an 8-day Postgraduate Course on Research Directions and Strategies and a 6-day Practitioner’s Course on Community Interventions. The overall goal of the courses is to improve the public’s health by increasing the number of public health researchers and practitioners who have expertise in the relationship between physical activity and health in populations.
Approximately 25 fellows are accepted for each course using criteria like educational background, experience, professional position, and potential to enhance public health research and practice. The deadline for applications is May 15, 2009.
The PAPH Courses will be held at The Sea Pines Resort and Conference Center, Hilton Head Island, SC (USA) from September 15-23, 2009. For more information, please contact Janna Borden at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website at http://prevention.sph.sc.edu/seapines/index.htm.
