Presentation at the 9th Australian Health Economics Doctoral Online Workshop
Xiuqin Xiong, our PhD candidate in the Health Economics Unit, has made a presentation at the 9th Australian Health Economics Doctoral (AHED) Online Workshop on Wednesday, 16th September 2020. The presentation was titled "Association between 24-hour movement behaviours and health-related quality of life in Australian children". Using data from a nationally representative longitudinal survey (LSAC) with comprehensive time use diaries, this study explored the relationship between integrated 24-hour movement behaviors (physical activity, screen use and sleep) and quality of life among children. The result could be particularly relevant during the COVID-19 pandemic, where children tend to have reduced physical activities and increased screen time due to long periods of lock-down.
Xiuqin has also been elected as the AHED representative (convenor) in 2020. As a convenor, she is very glad to help organise workshops and conferences held by AHES.
