PlayCore Scholar Series
with the Physical Activity Research Center
The Physical Activity Research Center (PARC) is a collaboration of four leading universities building the evidence base for policy changes and practices that will help make physical activity part of everyday life for all children. PARC focuses on strategies that can help children in lower-income communities, often part of African American, Latino, Native American, Asian American and Pacific Islander ethnicity groups, who typically have fewer opportunities to be active.
