Physical Activity, Sports, & Exercise Lab (PASElab)

The PASElab focuses on social processes that impact health beliefs and behaviors. We are particularly interested in physical activity and exercise as national trends in childhood obesity continue to cause concern. CDC data suggests that a significant portion of the nation is living a sedentary lifestyle, and we are eager to understand how physical activity habits develop through young adulthood. You can learn more about what we study by visiting the lab website. The site includes our current projects and the work being completed by undergraduate research assistants.
