Professor Mark Tremblay delivered an invited presentation on April 22 as part of a global symposium related to physical literacy. His presentation titled “Physical literacy and healthy movement amongst children and youth: current evidence from Canada” was made to an audience of >170 participants from around the world participating in the Danish Physical Literacy Network Webinar on Physical Literacy, Physical Activity and Population Health. Congratulations, Mark, on your successful presentation!
This past winter, the Healthy Active Living and Obesity Research Group partnered with the Ontario Society for Health and Fitness (OSHF) to offer full-day physical literacy workshops across Ontario. Workshops were offered in Thunder Bay, Kingston, Toronto, Sudbury, and Ottawa to introduce attendees to the Canadian Assessment of Physical Literacy (CAPL). Research Coordinator, Stacey Alpous wrapped up the series on Thursday March 24th in Ottawa. Thanks so much for all of those who attended the series and to the staff at OSHF for all of their planning and hard work!
