Selected Publications in April

How can the relationship between digital intervention and physical activity be evaluated? What influence does the weather have on whether study participants show up? Which aspects are missing in physical therapist education? What topics should prevention research address in the future? How does the Puumala orthohantavirus behave indoors? What influence does dietary behavior have on climate change? These are the questions BIPS publications explored in April.
