Welcome

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Scientific Committee and the Organising Committee, we are delighted to invite you to join us in Belfast for the 12th Annual Meeting and 7th Conference of HEPA Europe.  

This year's conference theme is - 'Walking the Walk':  what should the public health policy response be to the evidence for physical activity. We are planning a range of relevant symposia and plenary sessions including:

  • National and regional approaches to physical activity promotion and surveillance
  • Knowledge translation
  • Individual, social and environmental approaches to addressing physical inactivity and sedentary behaviour

The conference will be hosted by Northern Ireland's two Universities, Ulster University and Queen's University Belfast along with the UKCRC funded Research Centre - The Centre of Excellence for Public Health NI.

We look forward to welcoming you to Northern Ireland and are certain you will take home memories of an enjoyable and informative event, excellent hospitality and new friends.
