During the Games next week, you may see Katie Beck around asking questions. She is doing her masters at UPEI with a focus on aging and physical activity.
She will be looking for participants aged 65-75 to participate on a “Physical Activity and Aging Research Committee”, a 4-6 hour time commitment, and/or in a focus group, a 1-1.5 hour time commitment.
She’s interested in knowing why seniors do or do not participate in physical activity. Her research should be able to assist us to deliver even better 55+ Games so please say hello if you see her. She will be at the Opening Ceremony at the Cornwall Curling Club on Monday morning at 10:30am as well as at the Health & Wellness Expo at the APM Centre on Friday afternoon from 1:00pm-3:00pm.
