Overview

Can exercise help prevent cancer? There's a growing body of evidence to say that it can. People who engage in physical activity regularly can reduce their risk of developing certain chronic diseases by up to 50%.

This short course looks at the facts relating to exercise in disease prevention and offers guidelines for the safe prescription of exercise. Explicitly targeted at healthcare professionals, the course is presented by Dr. Cuisle Forde and Dr. Aine Kelly, both professors of Trinity College Dublin.

Forde and Kelly look at what happens to the body during physical exercise and the long-term benefits that regular exercise can bring. The course takes a deep dive into the effects of exercise on different groups, including children, those with existing health conditions, and the elderly.
