27th ICPAFR Post Symposium Report


The 27th  Biennial symposium of the ICPAFR was held in Hamilton, New Zealand, between 29 and 30th August 2013. The Waikato Institute of Technology and the School of Sport and Exercise Science  co-organised the event. The general symposium theme “Physical activity and fitness across the life span” has been chosen due to the paucity of knowledge and understanding about the latter part of the theme.
Our thanks are due to Prof. Glynis Longhurst  for her invaluable effort. 
The ICPAFR Executive.
