Event description

Description

Regular physical activity is important for long-term physical and mental health. However, girls and women are consistently identified as less active than boys and men. The reasons for this are multi-faceted, as will be discussed in the Brown Bag Talk.

The Women and Girls in Sport Advisory Board was established in October 2017 to provide independent advice to the Minister for Public Health and Sport on female participation and awareness raising in all areas of sport and physical activity. SCPHRP was commissioned by this group to evaluate participation levels and media representation of girls and women in physical activity in Scotland to support their work. This research was led by former SCPHRP member Dr Yvonne Laird, along with Jillian Manner, Audrey Buelo and Professor Ruth Jepson.

Dr Yvonne Laird is currently a Lecturer in Prevention and Health Promotion at The University of Sydney. Audrey Buelo and Jillian Manner will be presenting and discussing the findings, during an interactive and eye-opening session.
