I attended the launch of the new Physical Activity for Health Research Centre at The University of Edinburgh on the 29th January 2013.  It was great to hear Professor Nanette Mutrie’s vision for the future of the group.  Professor Fiona Bull gave an excellent account of the global situation focusing on the 7 investments that work for physical activity:

1. Whole of School Programmes

2. Transport

3. Urban Design

4. Engagement with Individuals with Non-Communicable Disease 

5. Public Education 

6. Community Wide Integrative Interventions 

7. Sport

I was also very grateful to the team for giving me the opportunity to share my poster presentation: Amount of Sedentary Behaviour in Older Adults
