Move UBC Physical Activity Research Roundtable

This new event, organized by UBC Wellbeing’s Physical Activity Office, was created to explore more ways that we can promote physical activity on campus. The format will consist of short ‘data blitz’ presentations by UBC Faculty followed by roundtable discussions on related themes.

The objectives of this event are to:

  • Engage UBC faculty, staff, and students in a vibrant discussion about promoting physical activity on our campus
  • Learn from UBC faculty about best practices in promoting physical activity
  • Facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration
  • Highlight actionable priorities to inform the Physical Activity Office’s strategies for next year.
