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