The objective of the proposed internship is to help support the launch of disability inclusive content for an app created by ParticipACTION, Canada’s leading non-profit physical activity organization. The goal of the content is to motivate inactive Canadians with a disability to sit less and move more, with the aim of achieving Canada’s Physical Activity Guidelines. This will entail performing literature reviews to build a knowledge base on best practices for app design and PA content that is disability inclusive, and identifying appropriate strategies to deliver PA information to disability end-users through surveys and interviews. The organization will benefit from the intern’s presence as he will develop evidence-informed content for the app that is disability inclusive and will enhance innovative solutions to support ParticipACTION’s goal to help all Canadians sit less and move more.
