With $1.4 million in funding, the Canada Research Chair in Exercise Recommendations for Healthy Aging will be led by Isabelle Dionne, Vice-Dean of Research and Graduate Studies in the Université de Sherbrooke’s Faculty of Physical and Sports Education.
The chair’s recommendations will focus on improving the health of the elderly and help reduce the risks of chronic diseases, especially type 2 diabetes and physical disabilities.
