Active living in Kingston Ontario

Physical Activity in Kingston Children

Researchers at Queens University are looking for 10-13 year olds to participate in a physical activity study. This study will determine where and when children are physically active. It will also determine how different types of physical activity influence children’s health. All 10-13 year olds who live and go to school in Kingston can participate. Participation in this study involves the following:

 Simple physical measures such as height, weight, and blood pressure.

 Completing a survey on a computer

 Wearing a small activity measurement device for 7 days

The total time commitment for participating is about 4 hours.

Children who complete the study will earn $40!
