Professional Learning Virtual Health Series
Additional information on the project is on our blogpost and the Mi-LEAP website.
The U-M Childhood Disparities Research Laboratory, led by Dr. Rebecca Hasson is collaborating with our president-elect and Saginaw ISDs Whole Child Program Director, Amy Wassmann, in effectively implementing the InPACTatSchool program.
InPACTatSchool (Interrupting Prolonged Sitting with ACTivity at School) is a program developed by Dr. Hasson’s lab to improve students’ physical health, cognitive function, and enhance behavioral self-regulation by emphasizing children’s natural physical activity patterns through the implementation of short, intermittent sessions of activity throughout the school day.
For more information or to get connected to their free resources, visit our blogpost or the InPACTatSchool website.
