 one or more people and text

The fourth annual symposium for the McGill Research Centre for Physical Activity and Health: Physical Activity and Women's Health will take place on November 24, 2017 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.


We will explore emerging women’s health research on topics that have traditionally centered on men; consider physical, physiologic, social, and environmental factors that influence participation in physical activity, particulary among women; and discover where research on physical activity and women’s health is leading the charge to impact the health of all Canadians.
