Pediatric Exercise

Description:
This course focuses on exercise and physical activity in children and adolescents. This course introduces students to the anatomical, physiological, and psychosocial issues related to exercise and physical activity in children such as effects of maturation, growth and puberty on the fitness components (body composition, cardiorespiratory endurance, muscle strength, muscle endurance and flexibility), normal responses to exercise, and adaptations of exercise training. Students will also explore clinical pediatric health issues (asthma, diabetes, congenital heart disease, obesity, etc), and how to adapt appropriate and safe physical activity and exercise programs. A special emphasis will also be on public health policies and national recommendations for children and adolescents including physical activity, physical education, nutritional intake, and sedentary behaviors.
