Activity and Aging Conference

Research to Action 2010!

Mark your calendars!

June 18 and 19, 2010 the CCAA will host the second Research to Action: Activity and Aging Continuing Education Conference. Not only is the conference for CCAA trained individuals but it is also open to anyone with an interest in the field of physical activity and aging. The two-day event will be held at London Hall, located at the University of Western Ontario.

Here’s what to expect:

Friday, June 18 – Get Inspired and Get Moving!

Listen to the dynamic Dr. Kevin Shoemaker from the University of Western Ontario discuss exercise, aging and their effects on the brain. You will also learn about the latest advances in physical activity and aging from top researchers working at the forefront of this rapidly evolving field, as you warm up to your conference experience in the morning. Other highlights of the first morning include Loving your Heart and the Skinny on Pole Walking as well as information on the latest advances in rehabilitation from the experts at Shoppers Home Health.

Don’t get too comfortable in your chair though, because for the second part of the first day you will be on the move! This is your chance to start to tailor your conference experience, choose from a variety of fun and dynamic workshops to motivate and inspire you. Finally, we will help you wind down at the end of your first conference day with informative presentations and a question and answer period during the Trainer Discussion Panel.

Saturday, June 19 – Brush up on your skills!

Today you really get to make your conference what you want it to be. Your choice of workshops both morning and afternoon will help you get the most out of your time spent with us. Whether your interest is in higher functioning or lower functioning older adults, we have the information you need to make your time with your participants and clients time well spent when you get back to work!
