IMPACTS Lab would like to highlight this thirtieth scientific publication based on the analysis of data from the MATCH longitudinal study. This study illustrates the probability of participating in 36 different types of physical activity from childhood to late adolescence. The analysis reveals, among other things, that individual and unorganized activities are maintained longer than group and organized activities.

Congratulations to Pierre Lavoie and Jean-François Harvey on the publication of “Faut que ça bouge!”, which addresses the need to implement an approach and practices that promote physical activity among young people aged 1 to 18. Lab IMPACTS is proud to note that many of the book’s findings are supported by results from its longitudinal MATCH study, lead by Prof. Mathieu Bélanger, principal investigator. The book is available Éditions de l’Homme website.
