Body Hacking (for the Sane): Using Exercise Physiology to Slow Aging

February 07, 2019 | 12:00pm - 1:15pm | TBD/Your Computer

Physical activity is a powerful medicine that can promote health and change the trajectory of aging. However, in the modern world, the barriers to daily movement have gotten stronger, and the burden to exercise has gotten greater. As scientists learn more about the pathways of disease, the causes of aging, and the mechanisms by which exercise exerts its benefits, we can develop targeted exercise strategies that can slow (i.e. “hack”) the aging process.

Join us for this noon hour class, either in person or via Zoom, to learn how physical activity can slow aging, and how different types and amounts of activity can optimize desired health and fitness outcomes.

Instructor: Anne Friedlander, PhD, has been teaching exercise physiology classes at Stanford in the Program in Human Biology for more than 20 years. She has broad research experience in the areas of enhancing human performance, environmental physiology, and using physical activity to promote healthy aging.
