On March 26th, Angelica Blais (PhD candidate) presented findings from the â€śToolkitâ€ť project to the Eastern Canadian Symposium for Sport and Exercise Psychology, hosted by the University of Windsor. In her talk, Angelica spoke about how a clinical physical activity counselling intervention demonstrated beneficial effects on quality of life and self-efficacy for physical activity among children with congenital heart disease. Her preliminary findings indicated that the intervention could help mitigate age-related declines in motivation for physical activity and quality of life outcomes. This project, led by Dr. Patricia Longmuir, is part of an on-going multicenter collaboration with CHEO, Stollery Childrenâ€™s Hospital and the Childrenâ€™s Hospital at London Health Sciences Centre.
Congratulations, Angelica, on your successful presentation!
