Active Lifestyles – Helpful or Harmful? - RCSI Public Lecture

RCSI MyHealth public lecture on Wednesday, 27th April.

Health research experts, including Louise Keating, Chartered Physiotherapist and RCSI Lecturer, will share the benefits of staying active and achieving the right level of balance to stay healthy and injury free.

There is no denying the myriad of benefits of leading an active lifestyle including physical wellness, reduction in the risk of heart disease, weight and stress management and increased energy levels, to name just a few. However, with exercise also comes the risk of injury and burn out both from a physical and mental health perspective and these topics will be explored on the night.

Speakers include Louise Keating, RCSI School of Physiotherapy Lecturer and Chartered Physiotherapist; Prof John M. O’Byrne, Orthopaedic Surgeon; and Peter Connolly, Occupational Therapist. Also as part of the evening, RCSI researchers will demonstrate the latest regenerative medicine research findings through interactive demonstrations.
