In this course, you will learn about how the human body moves and the relationships between physical activity or inactivity and health and disease.
There is confusing information in our modern world regarding physical activity and health. This course uses evidence-based medicine to explain physical activity-related subjects using the latest scientific evidence. Some topics covered include: the physiology of movement, effects of physical activity on the body, physical activity public health, physical activity requirements and needs for different population groups, and use of technology.
You will be encouraged to look at your movement habits - and those of the wider public - in a new way that will hopefully improve your health (and that of your loved ones) now, and in the years to come.
