    Hi Im interested in reducing the burden of sedentary behaviour and physical inactivity among the at-risk population to NCDs.

  3. Hi, my research and practice is based around methods for development and implementation of intelligent physical behavior that can have a positive effect on personal wellbeing and environmental change for sedentary workers and creative practitioners. The model is based on learning to bring about ‘lengthening muscular contractions’ via consciously guided relational movements between the bones of the torso.

Currently I work with a team to conduct a study on National Report Card on Physical Activity and Health Indicators of Batswana Children/Youth of School going Age. I am interested in programs that will help prevent sedentary behaviours.

  9. Jenny Clark says:

    I am currently researching the link between sedentary jobs and morbid obesity. I believe that a sedentary position at work breeds a sedentary lifestyle at home. This transition is causing a lazy society that increases the burden on healthcare, but I believe it can be combatted with education, incentives, and the creation of healthier work spaces.
