The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) and the University of New Brunswick and Université de Moncton are pleased to announce the return of CSEP’s in-person annual conference! There is a great line-up of Symposia to look forward to and we’ve interviewed each presenter to give you a preview of what to expect and how attending will benefit you.
In this feature we talk to Dr. Leigh Vanderloo, the Knowledge Translation Manager at ParticipACTION and Research Fellow at SickKids Hospital in Toronto.
Having received her PhD in Health Promotion from the University of Western Ontario in 2016, Dr. Vanderloo’s area of research focuses on the objective measurement of young children’s physical activity levels and sedentary time. Her research interests also extend to the impact of the outdoor environment on young children’s activity behaviours. Dr. Vanderloo has published some of the first national and international papers examining the variability in young children’s activity levels across various early learning environments as well as exploring approaches for improving objective measurement in this population. Currently, her research examines the association between physical activity and sedentary time with cardiometabolic risk in young children.
Dr. Vanderloo is presenting “Symposium 1: ParticipACTION 2020 Report Card: Family Matters For Healthy Movement Behaviours In Children And Youth!“ at CSEP 2022. Learn more about what you can expect at this session:
