Movement Snacks: Strategies for Combating Sedentary Behavior on the College Campus
Thursday January 21, 2016
12pm-1pm (Feel free to bring your own lunch)
Dr. Molly Welsh will be discussing the physiological consequences of sedentary behavior, highlighting the concept that people who exercise regularly are still at risk. In her talk, she will review the current research on sedentary behavior and propose interventions that are possible at the Seattle University campus. We invite you to join in for some movement snacks that may increase your awareness of the dangers of physical inactivity and provide you with ideas for minor modifications to daily habits to combat sedentary behaviors. These are snacks that you can take with you to improve multiple dimensions of wellness as a student, teacher, or staff member at SU and beyond.
