Please RSVP here for our Boston Bridge Meeting on Wednesday, February 15th at 6pm.
The Health, Physical Activity and Sport Research Group from the Faculty of Psychology, Education and Sport Sciences at Blanquerna – Ramon Llull University in Barcelona, Spain aims to advance current scientific knowledge to enhance a healthier society by means of examining the beneficial effects of physical activity on individuals’ psychosocial and biological health and quality of life.
A team from Blanquerna will be visiting the MIT AgeLab and Boston Bridge to present several of their ongoing projects with older adults, specifically focusing on how co-creation can improve adherence, uptake and sustainability of interventions aimed at improving health-related outcomes.
