Increasing physical activity and healthy eating behaviours in South Asian communities

The health psych team is sending our best wishes to colleague Krishna Bhatti who will be presenting her research at next week’s BPS Division of Health Psychology Annual Conference.  Krishna’s poster will present findings from her pilot of a culturally adapted theoretically based intervention to increase physical activity and healthy eating behaviours in South Asian communities.  Krishna did this work as part of her Professional Doctorate in Health Psychology.

 

If you check out the academic programme for the conference you’ll get a sense of the wide range of topics covered by health psychology.

Congratulations to our friends at the BPS Division of Health Psychology on their successful postgraduate conference last week.
