ROSS PLANNING

We conducted a 2-hour professional development workshop with staff from ROSS Planning on: “Where is physical activity headed?” Before the session we surveyed attendees to understand what they wanted to gain from the workshop. Based on this the workshop covered four main topics: Defining and measuring physical activity; Overweight and obesity in Australia; Case studies of active communities; Queensland’s opportunities. Six staff attended the session. The session was interactive, free-flowing and generated a lot of energy and discussion among ROSS Planning staff.
