Description

The internationally renowned ‘science café on your doorstep’ is hosting a series of talks on the latest thinking in science, research and innovation, in Northampton.Hear about up to the minute issues that affect us all from experts in their field…all for the price of a coffee!

Our second talk will be from Dr Declan Ryan, Exercise Physiologist, who will speak about 'The Sitting Disease' and the effects it could have on our health as we enter older age.

Dubbed the ‘New Smoking’ and the ‘Sitting Disease’ by the media, the health effects of prolonged sitting have grabbed the headlines in recent months. At the next Café Scientifique, Dr Declan Ryan, an expert in sitting research, will talk about how this new focus on sitting within health research came about. Declan will highlight some of the surprising health statistics related to prolonged sitting and asking you to share what your tactics are to prevent the ‘Sitting Disease’ from getting a hold of you.

Come along and join the conversation on Thursday 27th February 2020 from 5.30pm.
