Essex Health Series


Active Essex are pleased to host the free, online Essex Health Series. The aim of these seminars is to provide anyone who delivers sport or physical activity with the latest information on ways to support people recovering from Covid-19, how this has impacted on those most vulnerable and opportunities for the Sport, Physical Activity and Leisure sector to support residents of Essex.


Upcoming Webinars

Physical Activity Clinical Champions Training: Tuesday 27th September, 12:30pm

Evidence shows that one in four people would be more active if advised by a GP or nurse. Health care professionals are considered a trusted source of advice, so what you say about physical activity and how they raise it as a topic could have a big impact on activity levels.

If like us, you believe that embedding physical activity within healthcare settings has an important role to play in supporting better patient outcomes, quality improvement and healthier communities, join us in creating change across a range of health partners and attend our next Essex Health series webinar.

The 1.5 hour online training session will support all healthcare professionals in advising patients on the benefits of physical activity, for the prevention and management of long-term conditions. The session will be delivered by Physical Activity Clinical Champion for the East of England and GP, Dr Vasandhara Thoroughgood.
