Abstract/Summary We are entering an era of rapid growth in the elderly population. In order to avoid the possibility of spiralling health care costs, preventative measures must be taken to maintain healthy aging. This symposium addressed the important role of physical activity in maintaining physical and mental function in older age, and examined the association between sedentary behavior and cardiometabolic risk.
