Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Between 2011 and 2013, 851 children (aged 9-13 years) from 46 schools throughout Southwestern Ontario participated in the STEAM project conducted by the HEAL.  STEAM stands for ‘Spatial Temporal Environmental and Activity Monitoring’, and the objective of the project is to assess how our certain characteristics of our local environments impact children’s physical activities, eating behaviours, and overall health and quality of life.  A summary of the preliminary findings can be found here (English | French) and more information on the project can be found on the project page.
