Christine Voss | Assistant Professor | Centre for Chronic Disease Prevention and Management, Southern Medical Program | christine.voss@ubc.ca | 250.807.8042 | Reichwald Health Sciences Centre
Research Interests: The overall goals of my research are to better understand and improve physical activity behaviours, and study how this important health behaviour is related to current and long-term health outcomes in both clinical and community-based settings. I use a combination of different methods to measure physical activity, ranging from questionnaires and interviews to state-of-the-art objective methods such as global positioning systems (GPS) trackers and commercial physical activity wristbands.
