A Step towards creating active urban communities: Seasonality and active Saskatoon kids (SASK)
Last Updated: August 28, 2014
Seasonality and Active Saskatoon Kids (SASK) is an obesity intervention research project that aims to measure and identify locations where physical activity occurs in Saskatoon, across all seasons, among children aged 10-14 years. Using both a self-reported activity questionnaire and accelerometers, the research team will learn about children's active and sedentary activities at school, at home and within the community.
Goals / Outcomes: The goal of the study is to create more active communities in Saskatoon by addressing several existing knowledge gaps such as seasonal effects on physical activity and sedentariness and where these occur. This study builds on the Smart Cities, Healthy Kids studies previously conducted in Saskatoon from 2009 to 2014.
