Scott K. Powers University of Florida, College of Health and Human Performance Abstract BIOGRAPHY Physical inactivity contributes to a variety of chronic diseases and health problems and inactivity has become a major public health problem globally. In contrast, it is established that regular exercise reduces the risk for many diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and type II diabetes. Further, regular physical activity is an effective therapy for several chronic diseases including type II diabetes and rehabilitation of patients following myocardial infarction. The fact that regular exercise can both prevent disease and improve disease outcomes has led to the coordinated initiative termed Exercise is Medicine. While the aforementioned benefits of exercise on health are well known, new research reveals that regular exercise also has many previously unknown health benefits such as reducing cardiac injury during a heart attack and protection against chemotherapy-induced cardiac and skeletal muscle damage. Further, emerging evidence indicates that endurance exercise training results in adaptations to subcutaneous adipocytes in a paracrine or endocrine manner to improve whole body glucose homeostasis. Collectively, these new findings illustrate that exercise is good medicine and suggest that research into the mechanism(s) responsible for exercise-induced health benefits are an important investigative tool leading to drug discovery and improved treatment for inactivity-related diseases. Scott K. Powers is the UAA Endowed Professor and a distinguished professor within the Department of Applied Physiology and Kinesiology at the University of Florida. His research focuses upon the effects of exercise and inactivity on redox signaling and gene expression of both cardiac and skeletal muscles. During the past 25 years his investigative work has been funded by a variety of granting agencies including the National Institutes of Health, American Heart Association, and American Lung Association. Collectively, Dr. Powers research has resulted in more than 235 peer-reviewed publications that are widely cited in the literature. 8 KEYNOTES Workplace Physical Activity Interventions in A Cost-Affectiveness Perspective KEYNOTE..... Willem van Mechelen Department of Public and Occupational Health and EMGO Institute for Health and Care Research, VU University Medical Center, Amsterdam, the Netherlands ABSTRACT BIOGRAPHY From a number of perspectives, worksite health promotion programs seem to be relevant and might be even more effective than usual care regarding typical health risk factors, such as reductions in musculoskeletal disorders, body weight, cholesterol level, and cardiovascular disease risks. However, if the company should take a serious interest in such costly health enhancing initiatives, they should also be informed about side-effects on productivity, sick leave, and the overall economical aspect of a sustainable work force. Hence, the financial benefits related to these issues should be included in scientific evaluations, and the costs of the program should be minimized. This presentation will not only cover the aspect of the general benefit of the society related to primary prevention, but will also take the perspective of specific interest of the companies for such work-related health enhancing programs. Starting from the systematic review of J.M. van Dongen et al. (Obes Rev 20;2:03-49), an overview will be given of the scientific evidence that has been published since then, about the financial return of worksite health promotion programs aimed at improving nutrition and/or increasing physical activity. Willem van Mechelen is Head Department of Department of Public and Occupational Health of VU University Medical Centre and Co- Director EMGO+ Institute of VU University Medical Centre. He is the Chairman of the Research Centre TNO VU University Medical Centre and Director of the VUmc spin-off company Evalua Nederland B.V. ( Ltd ). He earned his PhD in Human Movement Sciences in 992. He also is a board certified occupational physician and a registered epidemiologist. Currently, he is employed by the VU University Medical Centre in Amsterdam as a full professor of Occupational and Sports Medicine. He is chairman of the research centre which is focuses on the research topics work and health and lifestyle, health and sports providing state of the art knowledge for fellow researchers and policymakers of governmental and commercial institutes. 9 KEYNOTES Total Physical Activity is Associated with Positive Health Outcomes and Occupational Physical Activity is Not: How Come? KEYNOTE..... Allard van der Beek Free University Medical Center, Amsterdam ABSTRACT BIOGRAPHY Physical activity seems a magic pill, and its health-enhancing effects are beyond any doubt. However, recent epidemiological evidence from large prospective cohort studies has shown that physical activity in the occupational domain might not result in the same positive health effects as physical activity in other domains. Holtermann and his colleagues called this phenomenon the health paradox of occupational and leisure-time physical activity. If we take one step back, a systematic review and meta-analysis by Samitz et al. on domains of psychical activity and all-cause mortality, published in 20, found an inverse relation between increasing levels of occupational physical activity (OPA) and all-cause mortality. The combined risk ratio (RR) from maximally adjusted analyses in six cohort studies comparing highest with lowest levels of OPA was found to be 0.83 (95% CI: ), indicating that OPA was associated with reduced all-cause mortality. The mortality reductions were more pronounced in women than in men. Since then, however, more than ten prospective epidemiological studies published in international, peer-reviewed scientific journals showed the opposite: OPA was consistently associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and all-cause mortality in men. Such increased risk was either not found, or found to a lesser extent in women. This turning point in the scientific evidence was also reflected in a meta-analysis by Li et al. on physical activity and CVD, since it included prospective epidemiological studies published between 20 and March 203 only. They found an increased overall CVD risk for the group with high levels of OPA (pooled RR:.24, 95% CI: ) compared to the reference group with low OPA, which was not statistically significant for moderate levels of OPA (pooled RR:.0, 95% CI: ). This keynote presentation will focus on the potential reasons for these results, consistently showing a marked contrast between studies before and after Since 2007, Allard is holding a tenured position as Professor of Occupational Epidemiology. Presently, he is vice head of the Department of Public and Occupational Health and co-director of the EMGO+ Institute\ s research programme Musculoskeletal Health. His main research topics have been exposure assessment, (cost-) effectiveness of interventions, worksite health promotion, etiology of work-related musculoskeletal disorders and work stress, and insurance medicine. Allard van der Beek is (co-)author of over 250 scientific papers published in peer-reviewed, international journals. He supervised 26 researchers who successfully defended their PhD thesis, and he is supervising another 0 PhD students now. As of 2002 he is coordinator of Research Center Physical Activity, Work & Health, TNO-VUmc. Furthermore, Allard van der Beek serves as vice-chair of the Program Board of the Research Center for Insurance Medicine AMC-UMCG-UWV-VUmc; he was chair of this board during the period Jan 2007 Jul KEYNOTES Can Photos and Maps Help Us to Understand and Change Physical Activity? KEYNOTE..... Charlie Foster Oxford University, British Heart Foundation Centre on Population Approaches for Non-Communicable Disease Prevention ABSTRACT BIOGRAPHY The rapid evolution and distribution of technology in the modern world has resulted in new and exciting developments for the assessment and promotion physical activity. In the last few years, the number of portable devices that are able to monitor and record physical activity behaviour within the context of the physical environment has increased considerably. It is critical that researchers and practitioners who are using novel assessment techniques evaluate their implementation and impact. Photos and maps are not new ways of conveying information but may offer new approaches to the understanding and delivery of established way to change physical activity behaviours. This presentation will present (i) an overview of these approaches and the theories that underpin their use, (ii) their application to correlates and intervention development in research, (iii) their rapid adoption in the real world via new technologies, and (iv) offer suggestions for new research in this area. Associate Professor Charlie Foster is Deputy Director of the Research Group and the new WHO Collaborating Centre on Population Approaches to Non-Communicable Disease Prevention. He leads two British Heart Foundation funded programmes of research on physical activity and obesity. The aim of both programmes is to improve the quality of the evidence base for basic epidemiology, measurement, correlates, interventions and policy. With over one hundred research publications including the Lancet, BMJ, and Cochrane Collaboration, he was asked to co-author the recent UK Chief Medical Officer physical activity guidelines, published in 20. Dr Foster was appointed to the new NICE Public Health Advisory Committee, and as an academic consultant for the WHO, EC and CDC USA. His research has been recognised in awards from British Association of Sports and Exercise Sciences, International Society for Behavioural Nutrition and Physical Activity and UK Department of Health. SYMPOSIA 2 SYMPOSIA Collaboration and Intersectoral Approaches to Promote Physical Activity and Active Living Insights for Policy Name of the PRESENTERS... CHAIRS... DISCUSSANT... Lucy Saunders Transport for London & Greater London Authority, United Kingdom, Olov Belander The Norwegian Directorate of Health, Norway, Diana Rus Center for Health Policy and Public Health, Babeș-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania Karen Milton, Nuffield Department of Population Health, University of Oxford, United Kingdom, Sonja Kahlmeier, Physical Activity and Health Unit, University of Zurich, Switzerland Nanette Mutrie MBE, Physical Activity for Health, University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom(invited) Rationale Policies are a key element of a national strategy to promote physical activity and health. One element that is promoted as a standard approach in developing and implementing such policies is collaboration across sectors and stakeholders inside and outside of government. While most policies include elements of one or the other, the actual workings of such collaboration are not yet well understood. This symposium will present different examples and will derive conclusions and lessons learned for uptake by the present experts and policy makers in their own policies and settings. Purpose To provide examples of collaboration in different countries, to learn on challenges and different solutions and to identify key lessons for the future 3 SYMPOSIA Health By Stealth: Experiences of A Public Health Specialist Working in A Transport Authority Name of the PRESENTER... Lucy Saunders Public Health Specialist Transport & Public Realm Greater London Authority Policies and interventions and promotion of physical activity In London, like much of the UK, less than 6 in 0 adults achieve the minimum physical activity they need for health. The main way that people get their physical activity is through the walking they do in the transport system and active travel holds the biggest potential for shifting the population to higher activity levels. In 202 a public health specialist started working with London s strategic transport authority, Transport for London, to embed public health considerations into transport policy and practice. A transport-health action plan, the first of its kind for a Transport Authority, is being implemented. This includes monetising health impacts for business cases, new health evaluation frameworks, training on how to assess the quality of evidence, lobbying and advocacy. A Healthy Streets approach is used to engage internal stakeholders and prioritise activity. To shift population physical activity levels the systems that underpin planning and decision making in the transport sector need to change significantly and swiftly. This can only be achieved through an effective public health advocate being embedded in the transport authority and positioned to influence at every level of the organisation as well as with the wider forum of stakeholders. Improving the health of Londoners: transport action plan (204) Transport for London. Improving the health of Londoners: transport action plan (204) Transport for London. Transport policy, active travel, healthy streets, cross-sector working Over three years the public health specialist has experienced a range of challenges including different organizational cultures and languages, misconceptions and misunderstandings. What she has learnt from working through these will be of benefit to others embarking on partnership working across sectors. This action plan has won several awards and the public health specialist has been awarded Transport Planner of the Year 205. The work programme develops as the relationship between the transport sector and health matures in London. 4 SYMPOSIA Experiences with Intersectoral Collaboration for Hepa Promotion A 0 Year Story From Norway Name of the PRESENTER...
