Principal Investigators: Feldman, D; Cavallo, S (PDF)
Co-investigators: Duffy, C; Majnemer, A

Project Summary

  • Greater disease activity and pain may dissuade children and youth with arthritis from participating in more active pursuits, which places them at greater risk for adopting sedentary lifestyles.
  • In addition to disease-related determinants personal and contextual factors may also play an important role in explaining involvement in physical activities.
