Dr. James Sallis, renowned behavioural psychologist and Distinguished Professor of Family and Preventive Medicine at the University of California, San Diego, participated in a panel discussion on the results of his research on how the development of our cities and neighbourhoods influences our exercise choices and habits, and what each of us as individuals can do to stay active, no matter what environment in which we live.
