Join us for a virtual event where the realm of Kinesiology intersects with the future trajectories of healthcare. Since its inception in 1997, our esteemed community, with representation from across Alberta, has been steadfast in its commitment to advancing and promoting the field of Kinesiology.

This conference aims to not only inspire its attendees to envision broader possibilities within Kinesiology but also to offer a comparative perspective of Alberta's stance in this domain, relative to other provinces and international benchmarks. This comprehensive outlook is backed by meticulous market research conducted by 24 dedicated students from the University of Alberta, and other leaders in the industry.
