KIN 305: Physical Activity Epidemiology


(1 Unit)
Physical Activity Epidemiology will focus on how leisure-time physical activity can be promoted to increase both longevity and quality of life. Students will be introduced to basic epidemiological concepts, the relatively new area of physical activity epidemiology, and the relevant literature that allows public health policy to be created based on the strength of the evidence. This course will examine the impact of physical activity on disease mortality and disease risk factors. By examining both classic and contemporary studies, students will be able to discern how the literature has changed over time and how current public health recommendations are better suited to the population as a whole.
