With over hald a dozen presentations at national and international conferences, IMPACTS lab members have been busy! Some of our favorite activities included conferences from the International Society for Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity, American College of Sports Medicine, Maritime Strategy for Patient Oriented Research Summit and the Canadian Student Health Research Forum.
For research to have an impact on physical activity levels, it first needs to address priorities of those working on the promotion of sport and physical activity participation. This is why we led a study to identify these priorities!
