CRPASH gets knowledge and policy "off the shelf" and into communities, schools, and the media, where it can impact people's lives.
Center for Research on Physical Activity,
Sport & Health
Research designed to make a difference.
The D'Youville College Center for Research on Physical Activity, Sport & Health (CRPASH) designs, conducts, and disseminates cutting-edge research on the links among physical activity, sport, and health. CRPASH operates as an organizational catalyst for interdisciplinary research projects that foster education, policy development, and public health initiatives. We also specialize in getting knowledge and policy "off the shelf" and into communities, schools, and media, where it promises to impact people's lives.
CRPASH was endowed in 2002 by a generous gift from Deborah Slaner Larkin through the MARGARET Fund.
