UCLA Professor Hopes to Build A Fit Nation Through "Instant Recess"

For release: November 23, 2010
For press information, contact Mary Cocke Read, 901-678-1669

Celebrated author and UCLA professor Dr. Toni Yancey will deliver a lively, inspiring lecture on the state of American fitness during a visit to the University of Memphis on Dec. 8. She will discuss “Instant Recess: Building a Fit Nation 10 Minutes at a Time” at 1 p.m. in the University Center Bluff Room (Room 304).

The presentation is free and open to the public. A reception will follow the talk.

Yancey is a professor in the UCLA Department of Health Services and co-director of the UCLA Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Equity in the UCLA School of Public Health. She works to motivate Americans – persistently sedentary and plagued by obesity – into action to improve their fitness.

Her talk is presented by the Center for Health Equity Research and Promotion (CHERP) at the U of M’s School of Public Health.

Parking is available in the Zach Curlin garage adjacent to the University Center.

The event is sponsored by the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee Community Trust.
