Session Descriptions:

You Can Do It!: Strategies to Enhance Exercise Adherence

Exercise prescription is not an exact science.  Even though individuals know that they should be active, this knowledge doesn’t always translate to changes in physical activity.  Behavioural strategies that exercise prescription professionals may utilize to increase the probability of behaviour change are presented.

Exercise is Really Good Medicine

In this talk, Dr. Maheshwari will present the value of exercise in the treatment or prevention of many illnesses. Using his sense of humor honed from his days doing stand up comedy, he will discuss the evidence behind exercise as medicine and how he motivates patients to get active.

Exercise for the prevention and management of chronic diseases - highlighting the pivotal role of exercise professionals

Objectives:
  1. provide examples of exercise based rehabilitation for the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer and neurological conditions
  2. highlight the central role of exercise professionals in the examples above
  3. describe research projects n these settings

Foot and Gait Basics - Step into Super Feet!

Join Registered Kinesiologist Angela Pereira for an in depth look at toe, foot and ankle
structure and function and how this impacts gait mechanics (and the knee, hip and
lower back!). Together we’ll evaluate our footwear, play with foot and ankle mobility
exercises, and learn why every exercise program needs to start with the feet.

The Inactivity Crisis: Leveraging Technology to Scale Impact and Improve Life Health Trajectories for Canadians Across the Lifespan

Join us for a ground breaking presentation that delves into the proactive measures being built out by two Alberta school districts and a provincial public health authority to combat the physical inactivity crisis among both children and adults. With more than 80% of adults and 75% of students in Canada now favouring sedentary lifestyles over regular physical activity, the future health outlook for our country is deeply concerning. This has led to a consequential rise in non-communicable diseases, healthcare costs, and drug expenditures attributable to physical inactivity. The CDC's projection that 40% of today’s students will develop late-onset diabetes paints a bleak picture for both individuals and the healthcare system in the years to come. Additionally, many graduates are poised to encounter premature heart disease and early cognitive decline, all stemming from lifestyle habits ingrained during their formative years of 6
to 18.
 
Drs. Rawlek and Rollo will (a) highlight how evidence-based technology and digital health solutions can be leveraged to scale impact in facilitating physical activity, promoting healthy active living, and improving life health trajectories; (b) discuss the need for networking and cross-disciplinary partnership between education, healthcare and allied health professionals; and (c) showcase innovative initiatives, aiming to shift students and at-risk adults away from a future path of illness towards healthier lifestyles by empowering them to gain agency over their health and being regularly physically active. Attendees will gain insights into fostering comprehensive community solutions spanning both education and healthcare.

A $30 CDN administrative fee will apply to all cancelations until May 27th. After this date, no refunds will be issued. Des frais administratifs de 30 CDN s'appliqueront à toutes les annulations jusqu'au 27 mai. Après, cette date, il n'aura aucun de remboursement.
