I am passionate about improving the health of the community. My work with local providers helps me look at physical activity and exercise levels in the community and enables me to evaluate programmes already in place. Working with local schools on the Daily Mile project has been a particularly fulfilling and rewarding experience. There are many reported anecdotal benefits of the Daily Mile; we are now investigating scientifically, whether something as simple as a daily walk or run can make a difference to the physical well-being and concentration levels of children in the classroom.
