How sedentary are older adults?January 6, 2015
A 2 day conference on determinants of sedentary behaviour will be taking place on June 8 and 9th at Glasgow Caledonian University. A description and links for more details can be found below.
Reducing sedentary behaviour is a public health challenge internationally. Currently there is disparate and limited knowledge about its determinants across the life course to inform interventions. This meeting will bring together epidemiologist, psychologist, clinicians, economist, rehabilitation, life, health, behavioural and social scientists to define a consensus system approach model of the life course determinants of sedentary behaviour. The meeting will be held as part of the European Knowledge hub on Determinants of Diet and Physical Activity (www.dedipac.eu). During the meeting all attendees will be able to voice their opinion and watch consensus unfolding in real-time using the latest interactive information technology and consensus methodology. Key note speakers (Neville Owen, Jo Salmon, John Reilly, Genevieve Healy, Stef Kremers, Dawn Skelton and David Conroy) will chair the meeting. Registration includes an evening reception in which delegate will sample the finest Scottish Hospitality.
