Lunchtime Seminar April 14, 2011 (55:54 min.)

Out-of-School Time Programs offer an opportunity for physical activity. In this presentation, Georgia Hall, Ph.D., senior research scientist at the National Institute for Out-of-School Time at the Wellesley Centers for Women, will share research findings from two studies (NICHD Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development; Program Practices: An Investigation of Physical Activity and Healthy Eating Standards and Practices in Out-of-School Time Programs) that help us to understand children’s engagement in physical activity and how to promote involvement on an individual and program level.

WCW Lunchtime Seminar Series

  • Wellesley Centers for Women (WCW) scholars offer seminar and panel presentations during which they share their work with other scholars and the general public. The WCW Lunchtime Seminar Series, for example, offers residents and visitors to the Greater Boston area the opportunity to hear, in person, about work by WCW researchers and program staff. Other special events bring these researchers and program staff into communities for special presentations to the Centers' many constituents.
