Physical Activity Workshop

Obesity and cardiovascular diseases have become some of the biggest preventable health threats with many health experts voicing their concern that children are not exercising enough. As students from health-related degrees at the University of Melbourne, we aim to raise awareness amongst primary school students about the importance of daily physical activities in preventing these lifestyle diseases. In order to do this, we have designed a virtual physical health workshop, which will relay key messages in a fun, understandable and engaging manner. We hope that this workshop will encourage students to choose a more active lifestyle which will benefit not only their physical health, but also their mental health and emotional wellbeing.
