Join us for our first Virtual Congress!

We are excited to share with you the details of our first ever Virtual Congress – a 1-day event featuring 4 live symposia sessions focused on key topics in physical activity and health research, promotion and advocacy. The 1-day programme will run over 2 calendar days – Thursday 29 October and Friday 30 October – in order to accommodate a range of time zones.

Below is a schedule of events for the Virtual Congress, along with information on pricing and registration (incl. ISPAH membership till 28 February 2021). Since you may not be able to attend all sessions, you will be pleased to know that all sessions will be available for registered delegates to download after the congress.

Although we cannot meet in person, we look forward to connecting virtually!
