Research summary

Dr. Lévesque’s intervention and research setting is the community. Her research approach is participatory. Over the past 15 years, she has mainly focused on physical activity intervention effectiveness evaluation from an ecological and holistic perspective. She is especially interested in enhancing the accessibility of physical activity opportunities for youth and has a keen interest in working with Indigenous communities to eliminate health disparities related to physical inactivity. Although most of her federally-funded research is in Canada, she also collaborates with researchers in Mexico and has had the opportunity to train Mexican students and researchers interested in physical activity promotion and obesity prevention.
