About “DEDIPAC (Determinants of Diet and Physical Activity) Ireland”

DEDIPAC is a pan-European project aimed at providing a better understanding of how biological, ecological, psychological, sociological, economic and socio-economic factors influence consumer decision making and how to translate that knowledge into the development of strategies for effective disease prevention in target populations.

At this conference, research conducted by the Irish partners on diet, physical activity and sedentary behaviour will be presented under the following themes:

1.    Measurement of diet, physical activity and sedentary behaviour
2.    Determinants of diet, physical activity and sedentary behaviour
3.    Evaluation of public health and policy interventions for diet, physical activity and sedentary behaviour

Further information on the DEDIPAC project may be found here

We look forward to seeing you at The Gibson Hotel on September 7th.
