Event description

Description

If there were a pill which could give you a longer, healthier and happier life, and was completely free and available to almost everyone, it would be hailed as a wonder-drug. Regular physical activity has the potential to do all of these things and more, and yet getting motivated to move our bodies can be difficult. In this panel discussion, UEA researchers from a range of disciplines will take us through some of the benefits of physical activity: from lowering blood pressure and improving heart health, to alleviating loneliness and depression, to aiding recovery from life-changing conditions such as stroke and helping us to age well. At the end of the session, the panel will lead a short walk from the Forum to highlight the benefits of walking in a group. It will be accessible to those in wheelchairs.

Panel discussion with Dr Sarah Hanson, Prof Andy Jones, Dr Andy Atkins and Alison Welsh, UEA.
