Associate Professor Kirsten Coppell speaks at the BEATS symposium 2020

Wednesday, 5 February 2020

Associate Professor Kirsten Coppell, public health physician and EDOR researcher, spoke at the Built Environment and Active Transport to School (BEATS) symposium this month.

Dr Coppell's presentation focused on the dietary patterns of adolescents, and obesity-promoting food environments across the Otago region.

BEATS encourages the use of active transport (walking or cycling) to school among teenagers. Using active transport is a convenient and free way to integrate physical activity into everyday life, helping to promote obesity-preventing lifestyles and improve cardiovascular health.
