Transforming the built environment of a community can make a difference in how citizens feel about the accessibility of physical fitness. Since the start of March, Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine faculty and students have been engaging with local participants of The FitLot Method Program, an outdoor, group fitness program designed to meet the needs of adults 55 years and older.

In partnership with AARP Livable Communities and AARP Louisiana, FitLot received a grant to fund this particular 12-week program.

The assessments, funded through Tulane’s Center for Public Service to support student community involvement, follows The FitLot Method participants through their exercise journey from baseline, to mid-point, through the end of the 12-week program. Read the full article here.
