Exercise is Medicine: Adding Years to Life and Life to Years
Guest: Robert Scales, Ph.D., M.S.
Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. (@ChutkaMD)
We’ve all heard this many times “Exercise is good for you.” We know we should all participate in some form of exercise and we commonly recommend exercise to our patients. We’re very busy, our patients are very busy. So how do we develop a regular exercise program that we can adhere to and how do we get our patients to realize the benefits they can achieve with exercise? To help answer these questions, we have with us today Dr. Robert Scales, an exercise physiologist and director of Cardiac Rehabilitation & Wellness at Mayo Clinic, Arizona.
