Article Reaches Its 500th Citation!!!

On behalf of the Physical Activity and Chronic Disease Prevention Unit, we are honoured to announce that an article created by Dr. Darren Warburton, Crystal Whitney (research trainee) and Dr. Shannon Bredin (published in the prestigious Canadian Medical Association Journal) has reached the achievement of being cited over 500 times. To put this into context, an article that has been cited more than 400 times is often referred to as a “citation classic.” We are proud to be amongst an esteemed group of researchers to achieve this milestone.

We are pleased with the reception that this article has received since its publication in 2006. We feel that this reflects clearly the importance of the health benefits of physical activity, and provides further validation for the value of the research conducted in the Physical Activity and Chronic Disease Prevention Unit.
