Dr. Darrell Menard, a Canadian Armed Forces track and field record-holder, Member of the Canadian Forces sports hall of fame, and Surgeon General's specialist advisor in sports medicine, delivered a wonderful presentation “Exercise is Medicine” at NDHQ(Carling) on 24 April 2019. The presentation covered four main points:

  1. Over the last 20 years, inactivity has become a major risk factor to the health of Canadians.
  2. Regular physical activity will significantly reduce your risk of developing many chronic medical problems such as depression and diabetes.
  3. Being physically active won’t just add years to your life but more importantly it will add “life to your years.”
  4. It is never too late to get started!
