Exercise Rx – Physical Activity During the COVID Pandemic

Physical inactivity is a global crisis that has only worsened with the presence of COVID-19. In this presentation, Cindy Lin, MD, FACSM, Associate Director of Clinical Innovation for The Sports Institute, presents a UW Medicine Department of Rehabilitation Medicine Grand Rounds lecture on Physical Activity and the COVID-19 Pandemic. She discusses the physical inactivity crisis, the role of exercise and health, and physical activity solutions during the pandemic.

The Sports Institute at UW Medicine works to expand participation and safety in sports. Our work builds a positive cycle of physical activity, and Exercise Rx is an initiative of that work. Learn more about Exercise Rx and other initiatives at The Sports Institute.
