Joint Use of School Facilities in Missouri--What a Year of Research has Discovered  
Amy Eyler, Washington University in St. Louis
Via webinar--click here to pre-register

Dr Eyler has been doing some really exciting research into how schools around Missouri are able to share their facilities with the greater community.  What policies are in place, what are the challenges, how can the Missouri SRTS Network help?

The webinar is free and open to any one to join but you MUST pre-register to reserve your spot.

More details:

Community use or "joint use" policies outline the availability of school playgrounds, gyms and other recreational facilities for use by the community. These policies can facilitate physical activity opportunities, particularly if communities lack recreational facilities, parks, or safe places to play. The purpose of this webinar is to describe results from a study conducted to inventory these policies in Missouri school districts, analyze the policies for content, and identify correlates of policy components. Recommendations based on findings will be discussed.

Amy A. Eyler, PhD is an Associate Research Professor at Washington University in St. Louis in the Brown School of Social Work and the Prevention Research Center in St. Louis. She has been the lead investigator for the Physical Activity Policy Research Network (PAPRN) for the past 6 years. Her research centers on state and local policies that have the potential to increase community level physical activity.
