Recently, a leading exercise and sports science researcher, Dr. David Nieman, spoke on a 30-minute podcast discussing the impact of exercise on our immune system. Dr. Nieman has vast expertise in exercise immunology and, through this YouTube video, gives great insight on how to exercise during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Nieman also dives into how exercise can improve immune function, as well as situations in which exercise can actually have harmful effects. In the webcast, he uses plenty of support from his research and makes it easy to understand with fun analogies.
Please feel free to disseminate to your colleagues. We need to get the word out about the importance of being physically active both prior to and during an infectious disease pandemic!
