IHA Live Long Live Well colloquium series

Published: Tuesday 4th October 2016

The Institute for Health & Ageing (IHA) is pleased to present talks from colleagues and collaborators working across a range of disciplines relative to the pursuit of healthy and active ageing.

IHA's Dr Anthony Barnett is presenting the October instalment of the Live Long Live Well colloquium series and will be speaking about ‘Objective measurement of physical activity in older adults’.

Topic: Although physical activity is a well-established contributor to healthy ageing, the majority of older adults do not meet the current physical activity recommendations for health. To increase levels of participation, it is important to study and understand modifiable determinants of physical activity. One important contributor to this understanding is accurate measurement of physical activity. This presentation will discuss methods of objective measurement of physical activity with specific reference to older adult populations.

When: 2 to 3pm (AEST), Wednesday 5 October
Where: Room 6.02, Level 6, 215 Spring Street Melbourne
