Event description


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.

The day will include 6 exciting plenary talks with a focus on women's health research, a catered lunch, a student poster session with poster prizes awarded, and an opportunity for attendees to mingle with refreshments served following the final speaker.
