Through the lens of community-engaged physical activity intervention studies conducted in the UIC Healthy Kids Lab, we will explore how our research team has come to adopt a view of physical activity as “medium,” rather than “medicine.” We will explore how this framing has helped us promote mental health among children and families living in low-income communities; and its implications for overcoming traditional barriers to dissemination and implementation of physical activity interventions that have historically limited public health impact.
