Workshop focus:

Exercise has been shown to be beneficial in so many areas of physical and mental health. Furthermore, It is well documented that exercise is an important part of preventing chronic diseases (e.g., obesity, diabetes, cancer). But can exercise programs actually reduce the likelihood of drug abuse and thus prevent addiction? Although this particular session doesn’t claim to have the answer, we do believe the evidenced based research merits, the beginning of this dialog.
