The 7th International Society for Physical Activity and Health (ISPAH) congress is being held in London on 15 to 17 October 2018, and is now accepting symposia applications, abstracts and financial supporters / exhibitors.
This flagship physical activity and public health congress is being held in London for the first time, co-hosted by Public Health England and Sport England. It will have three main themes:
• Addressing inequalities within and through physical activity
• Evidence into policy and practice to achieve population change
• Physical activity and the wider determinants of health
In the wake of a wealth of new and emerging developments such as new national physical activity guidelines and the World Health Organization’s Global Action Plan on Physical Activity, ISPAH 2018 will bring together experts from academia, policy and practice to share learning and discuss ‘what next’ at this focal point for physical activity and health.
A range of high profile speakers from across disciplines are already confirmed as keynote speakers, including:

• Prof Fiona Bull - NCD Prevention Program Manager, World Health Organisation
