The ParticipACTION App: Evidence Development, Content Enhancement and Knowledge Translation

The objective of the proposed internship is to help support the launch of Phase 2 of an app created by ParticipACTION, Canada’s leading non-profit physical activity organization. The goal of the free app is to motivate inactive Canadians to sit less and move more. This will entail liaising with key experts and organizations in the field to solicit and collect contributing content for the app, conducting literature reviews to help create future evidence-informed content, and identifying appropriate strategies to deliver this information to target audiences and end-users through the app. The organization will benefit from the intern’s presence as she will help develop evidence-informed content for the app and enhance the public-facing provisions of scientific findings, compelling arguments, and innovative solutions to support ParticipACTION’s ultimate goal: helping Canadians sit less and move more.
