HALO Director Mark Tremblay delivered an invited presentation on June 24th to more than 200 public health professionals and practitioners at the Nepean Sportsplex. The talk titled “Position Statement on Active Outdoor Play: A foundation of evidence to get kids outdoors” came only a couple of weeks after the release of the Position Statement on Active Outdoor Play by 14 organizations, and contained in the 2015 ParticipACTION Report Card. Dr. Michael Cheng from CHEO presented after Professor Tremblay with further research and clinical evidence that time in nature is helpful to the mental and emotional health of children.
