“RETHINKING PHYSICAL ACTIVITY: CONSIDERING THE COMPLETE PICTURE”
Director, Mobility Division
Stanford Center on Longevity
One of the most universally recognized links between behavior and health is that physical activity is good for you. When we think of that activity, however, our brains often leap to gym memberships and special shoes. But even for the most active, exercise makes up only a small portion of the day. With the emergence of increasingly accurate wearable devices, we can now start to consider a more holistic model of human activity. Ken Smith, Director of the Center on Longevity’s Mobility Division, will discuss this shift in activity science, how even small amounts of movement can make a difference in our health, and how employers and advisors can play a role.
