With latest figures showing that almost a quarter of a million adults and one in every two children in Suffolk are not active enough to maintain good health, the annual Most Active County stakeholder event is to shine a light on the opportunities available to those that tackle inactivity.
Now in its 7th year, the event will take place at Wherstead Park Conference Centre near Ipswich on the afternoon of Wednesday 29th January 2020.
Although it is widely recognised that there are significant and far reaching benefits to be gained across the health sector, workplaces, schools, social services and the wider community by addressing inactivity, many sectors are still failing to place physical activity at the centre of their plans. The impact of this is that they are missing out on important opportunities to improve productivity, boost education, reduce the burden on the health service and improve the health and wellbeing of the community.
Hosted by award-winning broadcaster Rachel Sloane, the event will feature thought provoking and informative presentations from the national physical activity lead at Public Health England and Suffolk’s Director of Public Health.
Thematic sessions focusing on active planning, physical activity in care, health & wellbeing and the link between physical activity and mental health in young people will also enable delegates to immerse themselves in their specialist area of interest.
There will also be inspirational stories from people whose lives have been transformed by becoming active and a lively marketplace for delegates to explore.
