Get Up, Stand Up: A public health perspective on sedentary behaviour

Speaker: Dr John C Spence, Professor and Associate Dean (Research), Faculty of Physical Education & Recreation, University of Alberta

A growing body of research is accumulating on the topic of sedentary behaviour. Some recent evidence suggests that the health effects of this behaviour may be independent of physical activity. The implications of such findings could present some challenges to the standard physical activity health promotion campaigns and initiatives. In this presentation, Dr. Spence will clarify some definitional issues, describe the determinants of sedentary behaviour, and engage the audience in helping to identify potential interventions/solutions.

Presented by the Alberta Centre for Active Living.
