Tanya Berry's Blog on Physical Activity
The centre enters the "blogosphere" with Dr. Tanya Berry's new blog, a chance for Tanya to write (and sometimes vent) about physical activity issues. Tanya takes a personal, informative, and engaging look at issues such as the way the media presents physical activity, fitness fads, and the perceived link between physical activity and weight loss.
