NCCOR at the American College of Sports Medicine 64th Annual Meeting

May 25, 2017

NCCOR is traveling to Denver, Colorado, for the American College of Sports Medicine 64th Annual Meeting in May. More than 6,000 professionals from around the world will come together and share their latest research and innovations. The NCCOR booth (#125) will be in the exhibit hall throughout the conference. NCCOR will share new resources including the Measures Registry User Guides and teaching slides, highlights of our work on behavioral design, and a preview of the upcoming Youth Compendium of Physical Activities. Please follow us @NCCOR and use the hashtag #ACSM17 on Twitter to stay connected with NCCOR activities at ACSM.

NCCOR is also pleased to host a tutorial presentation at ACSM on Thursday, June 1, at 1:00 p.m. MT. David Berrigan, PhD, MPH, National Cancer Institute, along with Karin Pfeiffer, FACSM, PhD, Michigan State University, and Stephen Herrmann, PhD, Sanford Research—all members of the Youth Energy Expenditure Workgroup—will present Hot off the Presses: A Revised Youth Compendium of Physical Activities, a new NCCOR resource that will be released later this year.

The Youth Compendium of Physical Activities is a list of more than 200 common activities in which youth participate and the estimated energy cost associated with each activity. The Youth Compendium provides energy cost values for activities such as standing, doing household chores, playing active video games, playing and participating in games and sports activities, walking and running, and doing sedentary activities such as lying down or watching TV.
