On Jan. 26 from 10 a.m.–Noon, the CHHS North Carolina Public Health Training Center will host a training on the role of leisure in promoting physical activity among rural dwelling adults living with implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD).

Session attendees will be able to describe two barriers of participation in physical activity encountered by rural dwelling individuals with an ICD; provide two examples of how individualized education and leisure activity plans can facilitate participation in physical activity among rural dwelling individuals who have an ICD; and identify three strategies for improving the content and delivery of education provided to rural dwelling individuals with an ICD, specific to health condition and participation in physical activity and leisure.

The training will be led by Clemson University Assistant Professor, Brandi Crowe and her former CHHS colleagues: Susan Crawford, Lisa Sprod and Stephanie Turrise.
