Exercise as health care: past, present, and future - Hallman Lecture

Tuesday, November 15, 2022 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm EST (GMT -05:00)

Dr. Paul Oh, cardiologist and medical director of the Cardiac Rehabilitation and Secondary Prevention Program at the UHN-Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, will discuss the evolution and future of exercise as a key component of health promotion and care, particularly for people at risk for, or living with, chronic conditions.

The presentation will examine the collaborative role of clinical care and community services in exercise as part of health promotion and care, and as an opportunity for collaborations across medical disciplines.

The lecture will be hosted both in person at the University of Waterloo and streamed online, followed by a panel discussion. In-person attendees are invited to stay for a cocktail reception following the talk.
