Kinesiology Week 2021 Keynote Speaker: Dr. Kris Aubrey-Bassler
Monday, Nov. 22, 7-9 p.m.
Every year the Newfoundland and Labrador Kinesiology Association (NLKA) hosts Kinesiology Week, a National week-long celebration of physical activity and exercise and the profession of Kinesiology in our province. This year, we are hosting three events for our members and the general public.
The first event is an educational talk led by Dr. Aubrey-Bassler titled, “BETTER chronic disease prevention: A new role for kinesiologists in healthcare?”. The NLKA would welcome the opportunity to discuss the role of other health professionals in primary healthcare with Dr. Aubrey-Bassler and the general public.
Dr. Aubrey-Bassler completed his medical education at the University of Ottawa in 2001 and family medicine residency training with Family Medicine North, based in Thunder Bay and affiliated with McMaster University. After that, he completed additional residency training in rural advanced skills. He holds a Master’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of Western Ontario and the CCFP(EM) certificate.
About this event
Dr. Aubrey-Bassler will discuss his recently CIHR funded project BETTER. BETTER is led by a non-physician healthcare provider who has special training in helping people change their health behaviours, such as improving their diet, increasing their physical activity and limiting alcohol use.
Dr. Aubrey-Bassler will give an approximately 30-minute formal presentation, followed by a Q&A session on the role of other healthcare professionals in primary healthcare. Dr. Amanda Hancock from the Faculty of Business will moderate this event.
This event is open to the public, and NL healthcare professionals are encouraged to sign up!
