Interests & Expertise
Scott Strath’s primary research focus revolves around physical activity and public health. Specific interests include the relationship between physical activity and cardiovascular health; physical activity promotional strategies; physical activity assessment; physical activity epidemiology; community and national physical activity patterns; and environmental determinants of physical activity behavior.
