Adaptive Physical Activity Program

International Field Research (IFR) Program faculty and students have for many years been involved with the Adaptive Physical Activity (APA) Program in Tuscany, Italy.  The APA program is an evidence based exercise program designed to improve the mobility and quality of life of those living with a variety of chronic conditions. Over 250,000 individuals have participated in a wide variety of APA classes in Italy.  Take a look at the pictures and and the short documentary created by UMBC’s New Media Studio!
