Regardless of disease and disability, a daily dose of exercise has a remarkable benefit on cognitive and physical abilities and health, at any age.  But, according to Dr. Gareth Jones, these benefits may be especially important for our senior populations.

Dr. Jones, professor in the School of Health and Exercise Sciences, Faculty of Health and Social Development, at UBC Okanagan, will reveal the latest research from his lab on Parkinson’s disease, frailty and exercise to enhance and preserve physical function in a public talk at the Okanagan College as part of the Science in Society Speaker Series.
