WITH A KIN, A DIABETIC CAN...

The CKA, in an effort to foster better collaboration between various health groups, is proud to support initiatives such as the World Diabetes Day to be held on November 14th. For example, it has been demonstrated that exercise can reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes by 50% and be twice as effective as standard insulin. Physical activity and fitness can also reduce the risk of other medical conditions. This is why the CKA invites Kinesiologists to mobilize to help diabetics and have them consult a Kin near them!

TOWARDS A COMMON VISION TO MOVE BETTER AND LIVE BETTER

2018 NATIONAL KINESIOLOGY WEEK

OTTAWA, November 12, 2018 – Experts agree that nearly half of Canadian adults are not physically active enough to benefit their health and well-being, and despite many well-intended campaigns, this trend does not seem to be improving. This is why the Canadian Kinesiology Alliance (CKA), as part of the 2018 National Kinesiology Week taking place from November 12 to 18, salutes the Let’s Get Moving report, the latest initiative from the Government of Canada to create a common vision where all Canadians move more and sit less, more often. The CKA agrees that it is only through the collaboration of the community, the government and private and public sectors, that physical activity will be increased and sedentary living reduced across all generations.
