ISBNPA / ISPAH joint webinar: WHO Global Action Plan on PA; Sept 5, 2017 (9 pm UK time)

The Global Action Plan on PA (GAPPA) is a WHO initiative to promote PA worldwide for adoption in May 2018. GAPPA lays out the rationale and opportunities for multi-sectoral actions for progress on a key risk factor for NCDs. 
This initiative is endorsed by several societies, supporting the development, dissemination, and implementation of the plan. As part of their endorsement, ISBNPA and ISPAH are co-organizing a webinar (September 5, 9 pm, UK time) with the following objectives:

1. Inform about the plan
2. Provide opportunity for feedback on plan with focus on research needs
3. Provide opportunity for questions and discussion of GAPPA's draft document and the elaboration of the societies' key feedback points

Fiona Bull will present the plan. Charlie Foster (ISPAH President) and Jo Salmon (ISBNPA Past-President) will lead the discussion.
