Luciana Zuest, Ph.D., CPH
Thanks for visiting my website. I am an Associate Professor 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 K-12 physical education and physical activity promotion. I am Public Health Certified and have a Ph.D. in Coaching and Teaching Studies from West Virginia University.
My scholarship interest revolves around inclusive approaches to physical activity. I believe every 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.
This website contains sample of my work and resources related to physical activity promotion for young people. I hope you enjoy it!
