Symposium

The overarching goal of PATH’s annual symposium is to bring together members of the scientific community from McGill University and beyond who have a shared interest in promoting health through physical activity. 

Each year, attendees are treated to scholarly presentations from established and emerging research leaders across a broad spectrum of topics: from Exercise and the Aging Brain in 2014 to Sport-Related Concussion in 2015 to Balance and Mobility in Neurological Disorders in 2016.  In addition to advancing knowledge on the relationship between physical activity and health, the annual symposium provides attendees the opportunity to establish new research synergies with members of PATH and its partners. 

Come join us in discovering the PATH to better health through research and collaboration!  Want more information?  Email path [at] mcgill.ca or subscribe to our mailing list here.

 

Our third annual McGill Research Centre for Physical Activity and Health symposium: Balance and Mobility took place November 4, 2016 at the McGill Faculty Club and Conference Centre.

The program will included 2 keynotes and exciting talks on balance and mobility in healthy and aging populations, and neurological disorders covering the most recent evaluation and training techniques.

The symposium also included a dedicated poster session focused on scientific exchange and providing trainees an opportunity to showcase their research. 

Congratulations to Poster prize winners: Maxime Maheu, Dorelle Hinton, Felipe De Souza Leite, and Laura Hallward!

Program

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.
