Cheri Blauwet gives a public lecture at Loughborough University, England.
More than just a game: the public health impact of sport and physical activity for people with a disability
This lecture will emphasise the importance of engaging all people with an impairment, from grassroots up through elite, in sport as a means of promoting population health.
According to the World Health Organisation, up to 15-20% of our global population are individuals with an impairment. Para sport should be seen as a tool not only for elite competitive opportunities, but also to enhance and enrich opportunities for all individuals with an impairment to lead healthy lifestyles. When we consider sport through the lens of universal design, it is easy to see how we can move the needle for global promotion.
