Choose to Move! The Benefits and Science behind Physical Activity for Older Adults
The Burnaby Public Library, in partnership with the Active Aging Research Team, presents this free program.
The Active Aging Research Team (AART) promotes connected active lives through research, community engagement and scientific evaluation. AART is a group of interdisciplinary community-based researchers, staff, and trainees affiliated with the Centre for Hip Health and Mobility at the University of British Columbia. Engaging with partners in the community, AART aims to improve the social and physical health of individuals of all ages through development, implementation, and evaluation of physical activity that promotes health and disease prevention. In this talk, AART will share the many benefits of physical activity for older adults, findings from current research and introduce you to the Choose to Move program and science behind it.
