ASAHPERD envisions that all citizens of Alabama should have the opportunity to enjoy a quality life through knowledge and active participation in healthy lifestyle choices.

We are a group of over 1200 teachers, coaches, trainers, future professionals, exercise scientists, and recreation and dance educators, and students. Through our conferences and journals, we enrich the learning of our members and the lives of Alabamians. ASAHPERD is also involved with advocating for quality programs with the State Department of Education and the State Board of Education.

ASAHPERD provides two conferences each year focusing on the professional development needs of its members. We also publish journals and conference flyers for our membership. ASAHPERD is very active with advocacy efforts in the state. As you can see, the WHAT that we do for a volunteer group is exceptional!
