New in Epidemiology: The Advantages of Being a Weekend Warrior
A weekend warrior is someone who just works out once or twice per week, but still meets the physical activity recommendations of 150 minutes of moderate intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity activity weekly. When you keep a hectic week schedule, it’s often easy to de-prioritize working out or write it off altogether. A recent study gives some evidence of health benefit for those who think exercise is a lost cause if they cannot exercise every day.About the Study
What is Epidemiology?
Epidemiology explores how diseases affect populations and communities and allows us to understand the social and medical determinants of health. After graduating from our programs, students from our department are prepared to conduct epidemiologic research, undertake evaluation studies and monitor population health status in academic, government, private sector and community health settings. Our research helps drive understanding of how infectious diseases, like Ebola or HIV/AIDS, spread and which communities are most vulnerable so we can better treat and prevent future outbreaks.
