On November 15, 2018, the Illinois Alliance to Prevent Obesity (IAPO) was honored to be awarded the 2018 Arthur Steinhaus Professional Association Award by the Illinois Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (IAHPERD) at their annual convention in St. Charles, Illinois.
The Dr. Arthur Steinhaus Professional Association Award recognizes a significant contribution to IAHPERD or to the profession in general. IAHPERD was acknowledging IAPO’s work to protect and strengthen Illinois’ physical education (P.E.) requirements and ensure all the state’s students have access to high-quality enhanced P.E.
IAPO would like to use this space to thank IAHPERD for this honor and to lift up their steadfast and substantive partnership in these efforts, without which few of the advancements we’ve seen enacted in this state in recent years would have come to fruition. We look forward to continuing our work together for many years to come!
