Empowering Patients to Engage in (And Actually Enjoy) Exercise

Description: Despite the extensive evidence of the many health benefits regular physical activity and exercise provide, the CDC estimates that only about 1 in 5 U.S. adults are currently meeting the established physical activity guidelines. As professionals, what can we do to get more people moving? In this webinar, Dr. Jessica Matthews, DBH, MS, NBC-HWC discusses the science and art of effectively collaborating with patients to make and sustain meaningful lifestyle changes.

Learning Objectives: 
1. Differentiate between physical activity and exercise.
2. Examine current physical activity guidelines.
3. Evaluate the role of physical activity and exercise in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases.
4. Apply evidence-based behavior change skills and approaches to empower patients to engage in and adhere to a regular routine of exercise. 

Speaker BioDr. Matthews is assistant professor and program director of the Master of Kinesiology in Integrative Wellness program at Point Loma Nazarene University. She serves on the UC San Diego Centers for Integrative Health research team, leading the behavioral aspects of lifestyle medicine research studies. She also serves as senior advisor for the American Council on Exercise (ACE), developing and delivering education for health coaches and exercise professionals.
