Earlier this fall I let people know that Dr Steve Blair was giving a free public lecture organized by the local Exercise is Medicine student group at Queen’s University. The event took place a little over a week ago, and I’m now able to share the full video and audio from that event.
As I mentioned before, Dr Blair is a pretty big deal in the arena of physical activity research, and he’s done a lot of seminal work in the area of physical activity and health (particularly with respect to the “fitness vs fatness” debate). Dr Blair begins his presentation around the 7:30 mark. Thanks to Andrea, Sara, and Jasmin at Queen’s for organizing and videotaping the event.
A few disclosures for those who are interested. I haven’t had time to watch the full video, but am posting this based on similar presentations of Dr Blair that I’ve attended in the past. Below are Dr Blair’s disclosures, which I have taken from a recent paper in PLOS ONE.
Dr. Blair receives book royalties (<$5,000/year) from Human Kinetics; honoraria for service on the Scientific/Medical Advisory Boards for Clarity, Technogym, Santech, and Jenny Craig; and honoraria for lectures and consultations from scientific, educational, and lay groups which are donated to the University of South Carolina or not-for-profit organizations. Dr. Blair is a consultant on research projects with the University of Texas-Southwestern Medical School and the University of Miami. During the past 5-year period Dr. Blair has received research grants from The Coca-Cola Company, the National Institutes of Health, and Department of Defense.
