Illinois Public Health Institute
Illinois has long been a leader in valuing children’s health by supporting daily physical education requirements for grades K-12. Many Illinois schools have designed or adopted model programs to meet this requirement and create opportunities for physical activity. Learn about the state’s successes, challenges, and lessons learned in its efforts to promote enhanced physical education programs. In addition, IPHI will feature its evidence-based Pump Up P.E.: Promote Health, Learning, & Lifelong Fitness one-day training program.
