The Kin290/Hon 290 gives undergraduate students an opportunity to build research skills and gain experience working in a lab environment. Within the Physical Activity and Health Promotion Lab students typically work on the FLASH (Free Living Activity Study for Health) project, learning the fundamentals of physical activity assessment, interacting with research participants to collect data and contribute to the ongoing FLASH data repository, and working towards answering their own research question.

Students interested in enrolling in these undergraduate research experiences should contact Dr. Greg Welk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Details on the previous projects are summarized below. While the project provides a specific research experience with monitors, the exposure provides the foundation for other practicum courses and applied research projects in the PAHP lab
