Exercise as it relates to Disease

Exercise in disease is a resource where implications for exercise as they relate to different chronic diseases, and their treatments are explored. At least, that is what it started as, but has expanded to look at the role of exercise in many health conditions. The book will act as a platform in which students create "fact sheets" covering a wide range of topics as shown below. The University unit runs from August-December 2011/12/13/14. ** denotes fact sheets that achieved academic excellence in the related University unit in the year that they were created.

Please note that this is a student created resource and should not be taken as medical advice!

There is teaching resource support for this book.
