Occupational and Environmental Health Seminar

The presentation will explore how neighbourhood walkability may influence physical activity levels and chronic disease risk. Examples will include Public Health Ontario’s research into the relationship between walkability and health. The presenter will also describe recent analyses of climate variables, such as temperature and precipitation, and how these may modify the relationship between walkability and physical activity. Methodological challenges encountered during this research will also be discussed.
