Physical inactivity causes more premature deaths than smoking.

There is overwhelming evidence that low physical activity is the major contributor to non-communicable diseases, and increasing evidence that sedentary behaviour is a separate but equally important risk factor that needs to be addressed.

This two day international conference will bring together experts, leaders and innovators working in exercise medicine to discuss their latest research. Delegates will leave the conference with an increased understanding of how to encourage physical activity within their communities, and help beat the biggest public health issue of our time.

If you are attending one day, please state in the 'special requirements field' which day you will be attending.
