Physical Activity & Healthful Living
The philosophy of PAHL is to promote the fundamental concepts associated with healthful living, throughout the lifespan. The Healthful Living component focuses upon the promotion of health and wellness within individuals, families, and communities through an understanding of healthful living, development of healthy lifestyles, and avoiding or overcoming harmful habits.
The Physical Activity component teaches the knowledge, skills, and rules of sports and recreational activities to help each student develop a lasting interest in lifetime participation and to attain and maintain a degree of physical fitness. PAHL also extends to servicing the athletes of Georgia Southern University through the athletic training graduate assistants; and providing public health services through the support of the American Red Cross and the Boys and Girls Club.
