Share Connect & Explore: Introducing the Youth Compendium of Physical Activities: A Breakthrough Resource for Childhood Obesity Research

Event Details

The National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR) launched the Youth Compendium of Physical Activities to help childhood obesity and physical activity researchers and practitioners estimate the associated energy expenditure of a variety of activities in which youth participate. The Youth Compendium of Physical Activities provides measures of energy expenditure for 196 common youth activities including sedentary activities, standing activities, playing and participating in games, and walking and running. This new compendium represents a great advancement in the field of youth energy expenditure as it is the first compendium to be based entirely on youth data, and includes METy values separated into four different age groups.

On December 6, NCCOR is hosting a Connect & Explore webinar, “Introducing the Youth Compendium of Physical Activities: A Breakthrough Resource for Childhood Obesity Research.” The webinar will provide information on energy costs and their dependency on age. Presenters will discuss the development of the Youth Compendium and ways in which this new tool can be used.

Join us on Wednesday, December 6, at 3:00 p.m. ET, for the one-hour webinar. Guest speakers include the following renowned researchers:

  • Karin Pfeiffer, PhD, an Associate Professor of Kinesiology at Michigan State University. Dr. Pfeiffer will define appropriate metrics for youth energy expenditure and age-dependency.

  • Nancy Butte, PhD, a Distinguished Emeritus Professor at Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Butte will share background on the development of the Compendium.

  • Scott Crouter, PhD, an Associate Professor of Exercise Physiology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Dr. Crouter will share how the Compendium can be used by a variety of audiences to measure youth physical activity.  

Invite a colleague, and please consider sharing this information on your social networks using the hashtag #ConnectExplore. We will also be live tweeting the event, so be sure to follow the conversation at @NCCOR. For those who cannot attend, the webinar will be recorded and archived on www.nccor.org.
