Addressing too much sitting is now recognised as a preventive health target. In 2014, Dr Healy was part of a multi-institutional team that was awarded an Australian National Health and Medical Research Council Centre of Research Excellence (CRE) grant on Sitting Time and Chronic Disease Prevention. This grant brings together the leading research teams and personnel in Australia to strengthen the sedentary behaviour and health evidence base across three primary themes: measurement, mechanisms and interventions. The research embedded with the CRE is conducted across key life stages (children, youth, adults, older adults) and population-health settings (e.g. schools, home, workplaces, aged care). This talk will provide an overview of the program of research being undertaken within the context of the CRE , with an emphasis on the measurement and workplace intervention elements.

This talk is part of the MRC Epidemiology and CEDAR Seminars series.
