Comprehensive school physical activity (PA) programs encourage before-school PA, classroom physical activities, quality physical education programs, and out-of-school-hour PA programs for students and parents. This session provides examples and ideas of how comprehensive PA and nutrition can be delivered based on evidence from implementing these practices in over 100 schools in Pima and Maricopa counties in Arizona. Participants will be actively engaged in the process of planning their next steps for promoting schoolwide wellness.
