Walk n’ Talk for Your Life is a collaborative, community health research study designed to increase socialization and healthy lifestyles among seniors. The program is led by UBC Okanagan faculty, staff and students from the Southern Medical Program, Nursing, Human Kinetics, Social Work and Psychology.
Dr. Charlotte Jones, Associate Professor of Medicine with the UBC Southern Medical Program is the principle investigator of the research study. Walk n’ Talk for Your Life has partnered with Global Fitness to host a free 10-week program facilitated by professional fitness trainers and assisted by UBC Okanagan students. The role of the students will focus on interacting with participants, assisting in exercise programs, teaching education modules, and collecting and evaluating data.
