The research team of Master Edward Ho, President of the Canadian Chinese Health Qigong Organization, Professor Colleen McMillan and Tony Tin from School of Social Work and Library Services, Renison University College, were the only Canadian delegates to be invited as featured speakers at this international event. They were invited to present their Qigong exercise research and mood app for older adults living in the community.
Their research is funded by the University of Waterloo’s Network for Aging Research and makes an important contribution to the literature by challenging the perception that older adults are uninterested in using mobile technology as a means to self monitor their mood and exercise.
