Physical activity is an important part of a child's healthy development, supporting physical and brain health and promoting lifelong fitness and well-being. School-based physical activity programs can help ensure that children are getting the activity they need every day.

Join us for the presentation of Evaluating Children’s Physical Activity in School-Based Programs, a working paper prepared for the Boston Foundation by ChildObesity180 at the Tufts University Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. Research Assistant Professor Dan Hatfield will share the paper's findings on the impact of physical activity partners' work with the Boston Public Schools, before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. A panel discussion about how to support daily physical activity for all young people will follow.
