EVENT: Physical Activity Policy Through the Life Course

This one-day event will advance understanding of the policy process as it relates to physical activity in older age by critically discussing policy perspectives and evidence needs.

The seminar will help stakeholders focus their lobby efforts by encouraging a critical examination into how the policy process can lead to more effective distribution of resources. Speakers from the policy sphere, key stakeholder groups, and academia will provide various perspectives about engaging with the policy process to produce successful outcomes.
