Dr Clark Presents at Sport Canada conference

Saturday, November 1, 2014

HEAL PDF and research associate, Dr. Andrew Clark presented at the 8th Annual Sport Canada Research Initiative Conference hosted by Sport Canada and Sport Information Resource Centre in Ottawa. His poster presentation, entitled Barriers to Sport in Hamilton, discussed how adults' sport participation is influenced by various barriers, such as accessibility, sport preferences, and time barriers. It is also apparent that those who are elderly (over 65) and those who live in low income households are far less likely to be active through sports. This SSHRC and Sport Canada research was conducted while Andrew was a PhD student at McMaster University's TransLAB under Dr. Darren Scott.
