Physical inactivity is one of the leading risk factors for noncommunicable disease mortality. People who are insufficiently active have a 20% to 30% increased risk of death compared to people who are sufficiently active (WHO) We all know the benefits, but many people still fall short of the recommended activity levels. In this episode, I interview Cedric Bryant, President, and Chief Science Officer at the American Council on Exercise (ACE). We discuss:
- The importance of community partnerships
- The population health impact on physical inactivity.
- Physical Activity as a Social Determinant of Health
- Small steps people can make to improve their health through exercise.
