Lager Lecture Online: Move it or Lose it with Stu Phillips

It is hard not to say that physical activity is a ‘miracle cure’ but when the evidence stacks up nothing really comes close to physical activity in terms of the numerous benefits it brings. As the aging Canadian population grows we are all seeking solutions as to how to age ‘successfully’, physical activity represents the lowest cost, effective, easily implementable, and with a highly favourable side-effect profile. In this inaugural online Lager Lecture, Dr. Stu Phillips will explore the ‘traditional’ as well as some less tangible, but perhaps equally as important, benefits of being physically active. We have also begun to understand what relatively ‘brief’ periods of inactivity do to aging persons and the importance of actively recovering from these periods as we age.
