In January 2011, the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) in partnership with the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) launched new physical activity guidelines for adults over the age of 65.
Recently, the Canadian Centre for Activity and Aging at Western created a video and brochure to help make the public aware of the new guidelines. Our goal is to make it easier for Canadian older adults and others to understand and act upon the recommendations put forth by CSEP. Challenging older adults to meet the new guidelines will enable them to improve their quality of life, and the health care system will benefit from a reduced incidence of disability and disease in this demographic.
Free stuff makes the "world go 'round"!
Everyone who completes the survey and provides us with their email address will be entered into a draw for a free CCAA T-shirt. The individual who crafts our favourite survey response will be awarded a CCAA yoga jacket for their efforts!
Good Luck to everyone and thanks for your participation!
