Resistance Training: The Science and Application
Wayne Westcott, PhD

It is relatively easy to instruct our patients to increase cardiovascular activity by walking further or faster; however, the equally important instruction to begin resistance training requires hands-on experience and more personalized attention. Dr. Westcott will address the key points of resistance exercise prescription for participants and their patients, including explanations of exercise selection and demonstrations of exercise performance.

Acquire tools to help your patients learn and adhere to healthier food consumption patterns. This workshop will be case based with challenges and questions solicited from the participants.

(Food tasting to follow.)

The Hidden Barrier to Self-Care and How to Overcome It
Michelle Segar, PhD, MPH 

In this workshop, we explore what lies behind having "no time" for self-care behaviors like exercise. Dr. Segar will discuss her 22 years of experience helping clinicians better prioritize their own self-care and discuss specific tips and tools for helping your patients and you learn how to make exercise, and self-care more generally, a consistent priority in your life.

Primal Play: Getting Children (and Adults) More Active through Play, Not Exercise
Darryl Edwards, MSc

Despite our best efforts, more than half of the population does not adhere to the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. Darryl Edwards presents his ground-breaking efforts to overcome inactivity by getting children and adults to joyously engage in play rather than reluctantly pursue an exercise regimen. Darryl will work hands-on with participants to teach these concepts and how to simply and easily instruct patients to adopt them. No special equipment is required. Bring yourself and leave the chore of exercise behind.
