The Sport, Health, and Activity Research and Policy Center (SHARP) researches and creates real world solutions to our most pressing questions in public health and health care, deploying gender as a critical lens. Using a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach that integrates motivational, organizational, cultural, and socio-political perspectives, SHARP studies the interconnections that influence health outcomes within families, schools, communities, and organizations. SHARP’s translational and applied research is informing new practices and policies related to health care, cultures of health, sport participation, and sustainable movement across the lifespan. The SHARP Center is housed within the University of Michigan’s Institute for Research on Women and Gender.
