2017 Highlights

Physical inactivity in children and adolescents is a widespread problem and we believe effective health and PE (HPE) programs can make a difference. Through our 50 Million Strong commitment, we hope to elevate public support for HPE and engage thousands of teachers across the country.

You can support this commitment by taking part in our national convention! Here are some dynamic sessions that will inspire you — and help you succeed in the classroom:

  • 50 Million Strong Forum – Help develop the road map to advance health and physical education programs in the 21st century.

  • Focused Programming – Take advantage of specialized tracks for elementary, secondary and adapted PE, coaching, research, health education and more.

  • Rapid Relay Sessions  Join one of these fast-paced, 15-minute presentations and you’ll love the helpful conversations and ideas that result!

  • Idea Exchange Sessions – Try a new style of interactive learning beginning with a 30-minute, in-person session and extending into SHAPE America’s online community, Exchange.

  • All-Convention Evening – Hosted by USA Baseball, this is the biggest networking event of the convention. Arrive early to meet our surprise baseball athletes and enjoy an evening filled with dancing, games and tasty Boston fare.
