IU Bloomington Webinar: The Evidence and Action on the Physical Dimension of Wellness

IU Bloomington Webinar: The Evidence and Action on the Physical Dimension of Wellness

Presented by Dr. Andrea Chomistek, Assistant Professor, Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington and Dr. Carol Kennedy-Armbruster, Senior Lecturer, Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington.

Rather than simply telling you that sitting is the new smoking, Drs. Andrea Chomistek and Carol Kennedy-Armbruster want to encourage you to move more, sit less, and live well. Research shows that 10-minute bouts of activity multiple times a day can improve your metabolic response, blood flow, and increase your level of alertness. To learn tips for incorporating more movement into your life, as well as other lifestyle changes that can reduce your risk of coronary heart disease, join us for this free webinar on Wednesday, May 25th.

Viewers who complete each webinar can earn up to one continuing education unit (CEU).
