An extension of the work started with a 2007 implementation grant, this grant aims to reduce disparities in fitness levels among children and adolescents statewide. This funding will support:

  • Testing the validity of school-based fitness assessments in predicting objective health outcomes
  • Expanding the use of evidence-based fitness testing in Wisconsin schools
  • Developing a student fitness database to provide data for public health purposes
  • Evaluating the adoption, adaptation and results of evidence-based strategies and programs.
