Aideen Johnson, a full-time PhD student within the Centre for Evidence and Social Innovation, has won a poster competition at the annual meeting of the Centre of Excellence for Public Health Northern Ireland.

The research includes a systematic review of the impact of school-based physical activity programmes on primary school children's wellbeing and also a natural experiment of the efficacy of Healthy Kidz Project, a physical literacy programme for primary schools.
