New Research shows association between behavioural risk factors, functional disability and social participation

New aging research published today in BMJ Open and led by Dr. Parminder Raina, shows that for middle-age and older adults, functional disability and behavioural risk factors (e.g., smoking, low physical activity, low nutritional intake and high-risk alcohol consumption) are associated with restrictions on social participation. Using data from the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging, this is the first study to look at these factors with a nationally generalizable sample for community-dwelling adults.
