* Changes to the Centre's Web Site
We've made big changes to several sections of our web site. The centre's site is an excellent source of best practices, current resources, and news about many aspects of physical activity. Our Education section (intended mainly for health practitioners) now contains separate sections on physical activity and girls, as well as new sections on obesity and cycling. This is in addition to existing resources on chronic disease prevention, community health, Aboriginal health, population health, walking, and workplace health. Visit the Education section at http://www.centre4activeliving.ca/education.html. The centre's Older Adults section now also contains an expanded resources section, including general and research resources, policy documents, and web site links. You can access the Older Adults part of our web site at http://www.centre4activeliving.ca/Education/OlderAdults/index.html. Visit our Resource Library section for descriptions of many of our latest acquisitions (http://www.centre4activeliving.ca/Education/ReLibrary.html). The centre's most recent Annual Report is now available on the web site at http://www.centre4activeliving.ca/AboutUs/AnnualReport02-03.pdf.
[Ed note: Recent staff changes at the centre are listed in our Comings & Goings column in OHPE 339.1]
