August 10 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm EDT

Dr. Kieran Reid will speak about recent studies that have shown that dedicated physical exercise programs in senior centers for older adults have been able to not only reduce the number of falls but improve cognitive function. He will also describe his efforts to develop senior center-based physical activity programs that can achieve these goals and improve the quality of life for at-risk older adults.

Speaker: Kieran Reid, PhD, MPH

Dr. Kieran Reid is Director of the Laboratory of Exercise Physiology and Physical Performance at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School.
