Greater Nebraska Physical Activity Initiative

GNPAI logo


The Greater Nebraska Physical Activity Initiative is a coordinated initiative to provide public health resources to promote physical activity in greater Nebraska which would allow for research studies that tie physical activity to health, academic performance, parental activity and psychological health.

The primary aim of the initiative is to develop an expert resource center for Greater Nebraska partners to access information related to physical activity programming. We have developed several programs for our community as well as those in greater Nebraska.

Please feel free to contact Kate Heelan, PhD, Director of the Physical Activity and Wellness Lab at with any questions.
