Mississauga, Ontario
June 6, 2017

7:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Versailles Convention Center, 6721 Edwards Blvd

This conference promises to be a pivotal professional development opportunity for both public health staff working on physical activity promotion, and others from relevant health, recreation and community organizations. In addition, it is:

  • targeted and relevant to the work we are doing at a local level in public health physical activity promotion and injury prevention
  • well aligned with the new draft Standards for Public Health Programs and Services
  • a unique opportunity to learn about other health units’ physical activity initiatives, programs and resources
  • a platform for networking with others working in physical activity promotion within public health and from other relevant health, recreation and community organizations

Hear from experts in the fields of Sedentary Behaviour and Risky Play present during a panel presentation in the morning, an afternoon keynote, and in two breakout sessions.

The keynote and risky play presentations and panel discussion will provide opportunities to explore relevant and emerging research, policy development and application of knowledge into practice. All speakers will also be providing a breakout session to further explore how these topics apply to public health practice and discuss practical ways to move forward at the local level.
