Additional Resources

Every person’s path to physical activity and a healthy lifestyle is different. You may find Lakeshore through the UAB/Lakeshore Research Collaborative, or through competitive athletics. You may never be able to visit Lakeshore’s campus and utilize the facility, but that does not mean you cannot be active and healthy. For more than 40 years, w have grown far beyond our walls of classes, programs and activity and we want our culture of possibility to stretch worldwide.

The National Center on Health, Physical Activity and Disability, which is housed at Lakeshore, is a great resource for people who may not live in the Birmingham, Alabama area. NCHPAD works to improve the health and wellness of people with disability by supporting accessible and inclusive public health promotion programs. They also provide individualized information through web-based materials and health communication. Check out all of their resources on nchpad.org (opens in a new tab).

Lakeshore Life (opens in a new tab) is a health promotion program designed to reach all Lakeshore members and staff from the youngest to the oldest member. This program not only focuses on the physical activity aspect of a healthy lifestyle, but the nutritional component as well. Check out our 2019 Lakeshore Life initiative, Mindful of You, below.

All of Us is a new research program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The goal is to advance precision medicine. Precision medicine is health care that is based on you as an individual. It takes into account factors like where you live, what you do, and your family health history. Precision medicine’s goal is to be able to tell people the best ways to stay healthy. If someone does get sick, precision medicine may help health care teams find the treatment that will work best. To get there, they need one million or more people. Those who join will share information about their health over time. Researchers will study this data. What they learn could improve health for generations to come. Participants are our partners. We’ll share information back with them over time. Just click the All of Us logo or visit joinallofus.org/together to learn more and sign up.
