Last week saw two BU staff and a PhD student present research around the topic of ‘Physical Activity and Social Engagement’. Professor Janet Dickinson, Associate Professor Carol Clark and Clare Killingback were privileged to attend the lunchtime meeting at the Rotary Club of Boscombe and Southbourne on Thursday 7th April. This provided a great opportunity for Clare to present the results of three years of doctoral research around older peoples’ adherence to community based group exercise programmes.
After a brief presentation of the research findings a small group discussion was opened up to gain feedback from the Rotary Club members around how BU could work with their organisation in connecting with those at risk of social isolation. This was a valuable meeting and it is hoped there may be opportunities for BU to partner with the Rotary Club in the future.
