The newly created McGill Research Centre for Physical Activity & Health serves as a focal point for researchers with an interest in promoting health through physical activity. To set the wheels in motion, we have organized our first annual symposium entitled: "Making Connections”. Speakers include active members and collaborators in our research centre, along with others with whom we hope to generate new linkages. We invite you and your trainees to come and learn about our research and join us in discovering the PATH to better health.
