2022 Boston Roybal Center Annual Meeting
The 2022 Boston Roybal Center annual meeting was held on October 14, 2022.
“Physical activity is a promising non-pharmacological, non-invasive, and cost-effective method of health promotion, although only a small percentage of adults engage in it regularly. Even a modest increase in physical activity along with a reduction in sedentary behavior could have far-reaching benefits for individual and population-level health.”
