RESCHEDULED - Visiting prof to give Strong Culture, Healthy Lifestyle lecture


Nipissing welcomes Dr. Rebecca Stanley, a Research Fellow in the Faculty of Social Sciences in Early Start at the University of Wollongong, Australia, to campus for a special lecture, that has been rescheduled to June 21, at noon in Surtees Centre room 202. 
  
Her lecture is titled Strong culture, healthy lifestyle: the development and implementation of the after school Australian Aboriginal cultural program.


She obtained her bachelor of occupational therapy degree at the University of South Australia, and went onto complete her PhD at the University of South Australia in 2013. Her research interests involve the development, implementation and evaluation of culturally appropriate school-, afterschool-, and community-based interventions to increase physical activity, reduce sedentary behaviour and promote healthy lifestyles in children and adolescents, particularly in Indigenous children. Dr. Stanley is currently leading a Global Challenges research project exploring the concept of strong culture, healthier lifestyles through the development of an afterschool cultural activity program for Aboriginal children living in the Shoalhaven region.

The lecture is free of charge and everyone is welcome.  A light lunch will be served.
