With Health In Mind LJMU And Randox Health Deliver Public Health Programmes

Liverpool John Moores University’s (LJMU) School of Sport and Exercise Sciences and University of Liverpool’s Philip Leverhulme Equine Hospital in partnership with Randox Health completed a week of public health programmes.

Racing legend Franny Norton, boxing champion Derry Matthews and Olympic athlete Matt McGovern worked alongside world-leading sport scientists, equine health experts and Randox to deliver interactive sessions and presentations to the public about the benefits of a preventive health approach in exercise and life in general. This included Merseyside school pupils boxing with Derry Matthews, discovering the demands on jockeys through racing Franny Norton on a horse simulator, and learning about different approaches to High Interval Training (HIT), all alongside world-class sport science support. Talks and presentations considered personalised approaches to athletic weight-making, general healthcare and included an open tour of the Research Institute for Sport and Exercise Sciences (RISES), a source of expertise for many elite athletes and the community.
