Unique Learning Opportunities Only at the CCAA!

couple at a laptopFree online educational presentations or “webinars” are the newest educational opportunity offered by the CCAA. The webinars cover a variety of topics including musculoskeletal health and diabetes as they relate to physical activity. These opportunities were made possible by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Public Health Agency of Canada.

The purpose of the webinars is to provide a forum for knowledge translation, discussion and education about the importance of physical activity and mobility in the maintenance of musculoskeletal health as well as the prevention and management of diabetes.

Experts in both fields have been recruited to share recent research findings with the interested public. The musculoskeletal health series began in August 2010 and was kicked off by Dr. Frank Beier from The University of Western Ontario. His presentation entitled Genes and Joints has been archived and can be viewed at any time by registering for the CCAA archives or by signing into the archives if you already have a CCAA account.

The second presentation will be given by Dr. Bert Taylor from the University of Manitoba (formerly of The University of Western Ontario). He will be discussing his latest research findings on Aging, Arthritis and Activity. For more information about the musculoskeletal health webinar series visit our upcoming presentations page.
