The benefits of exercise and the science behind it

We were fortunate this week that David Bartlett and Ellie Miles took time out of their busy schedules to feature in our Exercise themed webinar. David displayed some great graphics and cleverly utilized Star Wars characters to explain how our cells interact when we exercise. He said “exercise is a medicine” and we can use this to improve our fight with CLL.

Ellie Miles then guided us through exercise programmes that are used in the study and gave practical tips on how we can exercise at home. Two patient members who are on the study gave their perspectives and Ros and Alex spoke in glowing terms about the benefits they have experienced.

An engaging Q&A session featuring questions submitted during the talks closed out the event.

A big thank you to David, Ellie, Ros and Alex for their time and input.
