Brackney, Dana; Daughtridge, Emily; Jensen, Margaret; Childers, Sarah; Tocci, Nicholas; Wilson, Taylor; Meucci, Marco – American Journal of Health Education, 2021
Background: Physical activity (PA) is associated with positive health outcomes. However, children's access to physical activities they enjoy may be limited. Purpose: To evaluate second-grader's PA against the U.S. DHHS goals to see if a before-school, play-based dance program contributed to these goals. Operational feasibility was evaluated using…
