A highly-anticipated Brock University panel is set for Friday, Nov. 29 in the Sean O’Sullivan Theatre.

Co-hosted by Brock’s Centre for Lifespan Development Research, the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences and Centre for Bone and Muscle Health, Staying Healthy Across Your Lifespan – Tips and lessons from research will help educate and enlighten the public around the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.

Brock professors and researchers Mike Holmes, Nota Klentrou and Wendy Ward, along with a panel of student researchers, will use their own research to explain key issues and evidence-based recommendations for healthy living, with a focus on workplace health habits, bone health and nutrition, and exercise/sport training.

“This event aims to build linkages with the community with the focus on promoting physical activity across the lifespan,” says Klentrou, Associate Dean in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences. “Translating advances in exercise science research into the promotion of fitness, performance and health outcomes is in line with the Faculty’s mission to help Canadians improve the health of individuals, families, communities and organizations.”

A panel of student researchers will also include: Nigel Kurgan, PhD candidate in Health Sciences, Kailynn Mannella, MSc candidate in Kinesiology; Michael McAlpine, PhD candidate in Health Sciences; and Brandon McKinlay, PhD candidate in Health Sciences.
