EuroFIT was well represented at the International Society for Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity (ISBNPA) 14th Meeting in Edinburgh (03 – 06 June). EuroFIT Coordinator Prof. Sally Wyke and Prof. Kate Hunt (Glasgow University) gave a keynote lecture ‘Enhancing the social and cultural relevance of interventions: the inter-disciplinary science of behaviour change’. Lessons from FFIT, the successful predecessor of EuroFIT, were shared and the aims of EuroFIT were presented.
Glasgow University researcher Cindy Gray also presented a poster ‘European Fans in Training (EuroFIT): a socio-psychological approach to the development of a healthy lifestyle programme to engage an at-risk group in sustained behaviour change’. The poster presented the results of the research we have undertaken to develop the EuroFIT programme.
