Tune in for the 10th CCD Rounds webinar on 14 September. Peter Krustrup, Professor of Sport and Health Sciences at the University of Southern Denmark, will present a fresh approach to using recreational football to prevent obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. 

Join us for CCD Rounds #10: Improving health with football as medicine

He will show us how exercise is a cornerstone in preventing lifestyle diseases. The Football is Medicine programme provides a flexible, social and fun way of engaging people in physical activity by overcoming entrenched barriers to exercise. The programme has shown to be effective among people at elevated risk of type 2 diabetes and delivers health benefits to people already living with the disease. 

Already successful in diverse cultural settings, from the Faroe Islands in the chilly North Sea to tropical communities in Brazil and more temperate climates in Portugal and the US, the near-universal appeal and applicability make this an exciting opportunity for the Cities Changing Diabetes community worldwide. Do not miss it! We will kick off at 15.00 (CEST) sharp, so remember to mark your diary.
