Luciana Zuest, Ph.D, CPH
Thanks for visiting my website. I am Assistant Professor in Sport Pedagogy at California State University, Chico. My work is centered on the promotion of physical activity among young people. Particularly, I am interested in contributing to practices that decrease the social, cultural, and economical inequities related to physical activity opportunities for children and adolescents.
I teach undergraduate and graduate courses within the Department of Kinesiology at Chico State. These courses focus on curriculum and instruction in physical education and physical activity promotion in schools and communities. I am Public Health Certified and have a Ph.D. in Coaching and Teaching Studies from West Virginia University.
My scholarship interest revolves around critical, meaningful, and inclusive approaches to physical activity promotion in community and educational settings. I believe every young person should have equal opportunities to discover their moving bodies and find their "playgrounds", meaning the spaces in which they can move with confidence and enjoyment. I hope my research, teaching and service can contribute to the development of such spaces.
This website contains sample of my work and resources related to physical activity promotion. I hope you enjoy it!
