Background to the GPS-HRN

Who are we?

The Global Positioning System in Health Research Network was launched at the 2009 International Society for Behavioural Nutrition and Physical Activity Conference in Cascais, Portugal.

The aim of the GPS-HRN is to establish a communication forum that will allow GPS researchers to share ideas and experience.

The current administration team is comprised of researchers from Switzerland, New Zealand, USA, and Denmark.

Chair: Dr Scott Duncan (Auckland University of Technology)
Secretary: Dr Melody Oliver (Auckland University of Technology)
Treasurer: Dr Jacqueline Kerr (University of California, San Diego)
Communications Officer: Dr Jasper Schipperijn (University of Southern Denmark)
