On a daily basis we are bombarded with myriad claims for exercise and fitness. Much of this information is confusing and contradictory. In this course, the scientific method will be used as a basis for evaluating the exercise/fitness literature relative to the impact of physical behaviors on specific disease processes. Special attention will also be given to examining the influence of public policies and social/cultural variables on physical activity behaviors and related health indices.
