Western University’s popular complimentary lecture series, Classes Without Quizzes, returns on January 15 to explore the question, “Sitting: How can something that feels so good be so bad?”
Studies indicate adults spend most of their waking time being sedentary, which has been associated with an increased risk of health problems.
Kinesiology professor Harry Prapavessis, Director of Western’s Exercise and Health Psychology Lab, will examine the reasons we are so sedentary, why sedentary behaviour is bad for you, and ways we can sit less and move more.
Lecturer: Harry Prapavessis, Director of Western’s Exercise and Health Psychology Lab
Date: Thursday, January 15
Time: 7:00pm (doors open at 6:30pm)
Location: Stevenson Hunt Room, Central Branch, London Public Library, 251 Dundas Street, London, ON
