SDHI to host Symposium ‘Understanding and promoting physical activity of people with physical disabilities’

SDHI will host a Half-Day Symposium on 30 April 2012 to focus on psychosocial and environmental factors involved in supporting or preventing engagement in physical activity of people with acquired or lifelong physical disabilities. The symposium will be a GloCal event. Local presentations will be complemented by speakers from the US. Moreover, we will use social media to extend reach and interactivity on the day. We are now inviting researchers with a specific interest in research about physical activity of people with disabilities (e.g. spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, post-polio or stroke) to register their interest. Please note the focus will not be to prevent chronic conditions in the general population but to examine opportunities to enhance physical activity for those with existing disabilities. The aim of this mini-symposium is knowledge sharing of research experiences and the development of new research ideas. Please register for the event with SDHI by contacting Rosanne Bell r.c.bell @ dundee.ac.uk
