PROFILE: Dr. Plotnikoff directs the interdisciplinary physical activity and Population Health (PAPH) Research Laboratory at the University of Alberta. He holds a Chair in Applied Public Health from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and a Health Scholar Salary Award from the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (AHFMR).

Dr. Ron Plotnikoff focuses on individual/behavioural- and environmental-level theory and intervention development/testing for the prevention and management of diabetes and cardiovascular disease, as well as the promotion of healthy body weight and general health of the population through physical activity.
