Commented on Personal infection prevention behaviors and campaign to encourage travel during COVID-19: A cross-sectional study

Commented on Kids Save Lives: A blended learning approach to improve engagement of schoolchildren
Good question! It seems all dependent if a part of the curriculum eventually. Sounds only recommended currently. It can be something the parents should be informed about and they can make a decision with their children. Can be a matter of assent or dissent from each child as well.

Commented on Extraordinary claims in the literature on high-intensity interval training (HIIT): III. Critical analysis of four foundational arguments from an interdisciplinary lens
I just started doing HIIT and has been great personally. Based on this, it sounds like some contradictory evidence out there. For me, it has been great to be active and takes roughly 45 minutes and simply helps to get the heart rate up. I can see where it can be effective for people of different level and pace. I think a lot goes into doing it right.

Commented on Health in All Education: A Transdisciplinary Learning Outcomes Framework
Shows the importance of fields working harmoniously. "The purpose of the initiative was to (1) show the importance of integrating population health principles into higher-education transdisciplinary practices; (2) discuss examples of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention collaboration with disciplines related to public health (i.e., economics, environmental engineering, health informatics, health law and policy, social work, liberal education in general education); and (3) explore opportunities to promote transdisciplinary learning to prepare for collaborative, interprofessional practice in population health."
