News story: New support launched for disabled adults to improve health

first_img Being active is good for our health – both physical and mental. It is important that disabled people in the UK do not miss out on the benefits that being active can bring. I hope that the new infographic, designed by disabled people for disabled people, will help more people reap the benefits of physical activity in a safe and healthy way. These new resources are a step forward in ensuring that the health sector thinks about disabled people as individuals, who can be active, given the right opportunities. Our research shows that attitudinal, economic and societal barriers continue to prevent so many disabled people from being active. There remains a significant amount of work to do so we welcome PHE’s collaboration on this matter of huge importance to public health. There are potentially around 3.5 million disabled adults at greater risk of poor health due to inactivity, and evidence shows they are twice as likely to be inactive to non-disabled people.To address this, disabled people will be supported by new resources to help them get more active to improve their health.There are 11.5 million disabled people in England and nearly half (42%) of them are inactive per week compared to 21% of those with no disability, a two-fold difference.However, 4 in 5 disabled people report they would like to do more physical activity, highlighting continued barriers that prevent them from being active.Concern around safety is often cited as a major barrier to disabled people undertaking physical activity, but the review has shown that when performed at an appropriate level and intensity, this should not hinder them being more active and will lead to health benefits.The UK is at the forefront of action to address these inequalities, with new nationally developed resources to help disabled adults get more physically active being launched at the International Society for Physical Activity and Health Congress (ISPAH) in London today, Monday 15 October 2018.The first is a world first evidence review published by Public Health England (PHE) that highlights a critical need for disabled adults to do more physical activity to improve their health. The second is a new UK Chief Medical Officer (CMO) infographic to make physical activity recommendations more accessible and to support disabled people in getting more active.These works consider the breadth of impairments, covering long-term physical, sensory, cognitive, and mental health impairments, something that has never been done before in the UK.They have been developed to address psychological barriers which play the biggest role in preventing disabled people from taking part in physical activity, including the attitudes and perceptions of disabled people and non-disabled people that activity might be unsafe or worsen their disability.While national physical activity guidelines are currently produced for the whole population, the new evidence shows there is no risk for disabled people undertaking physical activity.It is recommended that disabled people build up physical activity, concentrating first on frequency, then duration, before finally raising the intensity level. This is especially significant for those that are not active at all and those with other existing health conditions.The review shows that being more active will improve their health, including improved fitness, muscle strength, undertaking of everyday tasks (for example housework and gardening), wellbeing, and sense of community, as well as reduced risk of diseases such as cardiovascular disease.Launching PHE’s evidence review at the ISPAH Congress, Duncan Selbie, PHE chief executive, said: Alongside the evidence review, the existing UK CMOs’ physical activity guidelines have been made more inclusive of disabled people. An infographic for healthcare professionals and disabled people has been produced that better highlights the benefits and practical steps to getting active to improve health.The infographic has been developed in collaboration with 350 disabled people, 10 disabilities organisations and 50 healthcare professionals and is endorsed by the 4 UK Chief Medical Officers.Chief Medical Officer for England, Professor Dame Sally Davies, said: Barry Horne, Chief Executive for Activity Alliance, said: Moving more is important for everyone and we must better support people who face barriers to being active. We can all find something that suits our needs and abilities from walking to playing ball games or joining a gym. ISPAH is co-hosted by PHE and Sport England and co-sponsored by the European network for the promotion of health-enhancing physical activity (HEPA Europe) and the World Health Organization (WHO).It aims to bring the best international minds together to bridge the gap between physical activity research, policy and practice to tackle health inequalities and support healthier nations across the world.last_img read more

The Fairgrounds were packed Thursday with fans eager to help kick off round two of Jazz Fest and to see the bountiful performances by the dozens of acts slated to grace its twelve stages. A majority of our afternoon was spent at the Fairgrounds’ Acura Stage, where George Porter Jr. & Runnin’ Pardners, Widespread Panic, and the supergroup Voice of the Wetlands, featuring Tab Benoit, Anders Osbourne, Waylon Thibodeaux, Johnny Sansone, George Porter Jr., and Joh, all put on stellar performances for the jovial crowd.George Porter Jr. & Runnin’ Pardners set the stage for the afternoon with their performance at 1:30. Around 3 p.m., Voice of the Wetlands treated the crowd to an all-star performance, eventually departing to make way for Widespread Panic’s massive festival set that spanned from 4:30 to 7. During Widespread’s performance, in addition to some of their more crowd-pleasing and festival-friendly classic numbers, the group worked in choice covers at the start and end of their set, with their widely performed versions of James Taylor’s “Knockin’ Around The Zoo” kicking off their set following “Pleas” and J.J. Cale’s “Travelin’ Light” winding down their set with its rumbling tones—a popular festival closer for the group.Their set at also saw an extended jam segment in its middle started by “Gimme.” The slowed down and spacier song made way for a soulful “Proving Ground,” before moving into a “Surprise Valley” sandwich, which housed “Tie Your Shoes” and an extended drum solo by Duane Trucks, before finally moving into “Angels Don’t Sing The Blues.” You can check out the setlist for Panic’s Jazz Fest set yesterday below, as well as check out pictures from Day 1 of Jazz Fest’s second weekend below, courtesy of Dave Vann.Setlist: Widespread Panic | New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival | New Orleans, LA | 5/4/2017Set: Pleas, Knockin’ Around The Zoo, Conrad The Caterpillar, Walkin’ (For Your Love), Diner > Pilgrims, Can’t Get High, Up All Night, Gimme > Proving Ground > Surprise Valley > Tie Your Shoes > Drums > Surprise Valley > Angels Don’t Sing The Blues, Heroes, Make Sense To Me, Travelin’ Light Load remaining images Load remaining imageslast_img read more

‘Fix It: Healthcare at the Tipping Point’ Screens at Cinema Arts Centre

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Health care is one of the most virulent issues of our time.After former President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law in 2011, Republicans in Congress pledged to repeal it. After winning the presidential election in November and holding onto control of both houses of Congress, Republicans vowed to replace the law with their own version of health care, one that would purportedly be more favorable to Americans. Led by President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), the GOP failed to even bring their legislation to the floor for a vote, however, marking a stunning defeat for the new president less than three months into his term. On Long Island, the promised repealing of Obamacare could have severe ramifications, with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo characterizing Republicans’ recent changes as potentially “devastating” statewide. Politics aside, health care is a major issue that affects all Americans: the uninsured, those with high premiums, insured citizens hobbled by burdensome hospital or prescription drug bills. On Sunday, April 9, Long Islanders will get a chance to view the pitfalls of the American health care system firsthand during a screening of the documentary, Fix it: Healthcare at the Tipping Point at Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington. The viewing will include state Assemb. Charles Lavine (D-Glen Cove) as a guest speaker. The documentary provides an “in-depth look into how our dysfunctional healthcare system is damaging our economy, suffocating our businesses, discouraging physicians and negatively impacting on the nation’s health, while remaining un-affordable for a third of our citizens,” according to the venue. The film will also highlight the very real ramifications for Americans struggling to choose between paying for drugs they need and other items they need to survive. The documentary not only covers the problems with America’s health care industry, but it also offers a way out: a single-payer system. The event is co-sponsored by Action Together Long Island and Long Island Activists. ‘Fix it: Healthcare at the Tipping Point’ will be screening at Cinema Arts Centre, located at 423 Park Avenue in Huntington, on Sunday, April 9, at 10:30 a.m. For more information and tickets, visit cinemaartscentre.org.last_img read more
