Research to Action 2024 - Canceled

We regret to inform you that the Research to Action conference, scheduled for June 8, 2024, has been canceled. This decision comes because of recent space allocation and restructuring activities at Western, which have impacted our ability to proceed with the event as planned. With the numerous uncertainties facing us this year, ensuring a satisfactory experience for all participants is unattainable.

While we are disappointed that we cannot host R2A in 2024, we are actively exploring alternative opportunities to continue our collaboration with partners and our knowledge sharing efforts with participants and instructors. Throughout the fall and winter months, we will be hosting 2-3 virtual Seniors Fitness Instructor Refresher Workshops over Zoom. These one to three-hour workshops will feature speakers originally scheduled to present at Research to Action 2024 and participation in the events can be submitted for PDCs for 2025 and 2026 renewals. They will also provide a platform for continued instructor engagement and the exchange of valuable insights and expertise in the field of physical activity and aging.

Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience caused by the cancellation of the conference. We remain dedicated to fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange within our community, and we look forward to the opportunity to connect with you virtually in the coming months.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
