Citizen Scientist for the SMART Study from JSGS

>> Email from  Dr. Tarun Katapally, Assistant Professor of JSGS, U. of Regina

Hello all,

 I would personally like to invite you to become a Citizen Scientist for the SMART Study. This initiative has been funded by SHRF to not only understand active living patterns among Saskatchewan residents, but also to allow Citizen Scientists to map barriers and facilitators of active living using Smartphone camera and audio features. The study has a seasonality component and at the moment, we are recruiting Citizen Scientists for Spring. We will eventually use this data to inform policy and program interventions.

 As a Citizen Scientist all you have to do is download an App and use it for 8 days. The maximum time commitment is 30 minutes overall. I have attached here 10 easy steps to do that. You could also go to http://www.smartstudysask.com  to find out more and become Citizen Scientists.

 Finally, if possible, please encourage your friends and family to join the study and add us on twitter: @SMARTSTUDYSK and Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SMARTSTUDYSASK/

 Please feel free to email me if you have any queries.

City Curbside SWAP

September 12, 2015 is being set for this years’ city-wide annual “Curbside Swap Day”. If your group is already doing a spring event, excellent, if not could you promote the fall day.

What I would like to know from your community is which time of year would be best for a city-wide clean up, spring or fall?

The Curbside Swap webpage on the city’s website will have promotional information available or give me a call and I can forward you the posters, postcard (attached) etc.
