To launch this new partnership, Dr. Jonathon Fowles, Faculty, Exercise is Medicine Canada, will present at the 2014 CAPA Annual Conference in Halifax on October 26, 2014. Dr. Fowles will describe the tools and resources EIMC has developed to help PAs and their health professional colleagues to ask about, assess, advise, counsel, prescribe and refer physical activity for chronic disease prevention, management and treatment. We look forward to working with EIMC and welcome them as our newest partner.
