Geo-SDH members present research at 2019 Active Living Conference

Group members Thomas Herrmann and William Gleckner each presented recent work at the Active Living Research Conference in Charleston, South Carolina this past week. Thomas presented work titled ‘Meeting Moderate-to-Vigorous Physical Activity Automatically’ where he explored the nuances of the built environment-physical activity relationship in Canada. While active living environment quality is the single largest predictor of engagement in utilitarian physical activity, this relationship varies based on the factors such as at work physical activity. William presented work on the relationship between active living environment and PM2.5 and NO2 in Canada, showing that more favourable active living environments have higher concentrations of both pollutants.
