Congratulations SBRN members – we just hit the 200 mark! Please continue to add studies to our expanding database of sedentary behaviour research, and let colleagues know about the network.
In the coming months we will be having informal SBRN meetups at conferences including ISBNPA (Austin, USA), ACSM (San Francisco, USA) and ICDAM (Rome, Italy). We also have an official SBRN publication In Press in 2 journals urging the adoption of a consistent definition of sedentary behaviour (signed by 53 separate SBRN members!), which will be unveiled as soon as possible. For more info on how to get involved in these initiatives be sure to look for emails from the SBRN list serve in your inbox.
Finally, the website has become increasingly popular since going online in September of 2011. The site has received just under 5000 visits, and now ranks among the top Google results for searches related to sedentary behaviour (using both American and Commonwealth spelling).
If anyone else has ideas for SBRN initiatives or meetups feel free to contact us through the website or through the SBRN member list serve.
