Physical Activity in Non-Communicable Disease Prevention and Control

University of Strathclyde

Content

Lack of physical activity is fuelling an increasing burden of morbidity and premature mortality from non-communicable diseases (NCD) like: diabetes, heart disease, stroke and some cancers.

The World Health Organisation has adopted targets to prevent and control these diseases. International action is likely and there's expected to be an increasing demand for academic expertise in this area.

We'll provide you with a comprehensive introduction to physical activity, and its role in the prevention and control of NCDs.

This course is suitable if you have a relevant background and training in areas like: medicine, physiology, exercise science and nutrition.

It's also a good option if you have a particular interest in the subject but don't have undergraduate training.
