Faculty RISE UP Against Sitting Disease to Improve Health and Productivity

Students and faculty often spend many hours sitting while studying and working at the computer to complete academic tasks. However, many hours spent sitting is associated with negative health consequences including type 2-diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and back pain. Moving more throughout the day has been shown to have positive health outcomes and improve productivity. This presentation will demonstrate how to implement the 20-8-2 rule to move more throughout the work day. Participants will collaborate to identify strategies to modify their work habits to promote standing and moving without sacrificing productivity.
