SHIFTing Gears to improve health

24 January 2024 Loughborough University

In her inaugural lecture, Professor Clemes will share her research – outlining the development and evaluation of pragmatic interventions designed to support people, of all ages, to sit less and move more.

A focus of the lecture will be her impactful research on professional drivers. She will provide an overview of the health inequalities experienced by HGV drivers – an essential, yet under-served, occupational group in terms of health promotion efforts.

She will describe the development, evaluation and implementation of the SHIFT programme , and her ongoing work which aims to change policy to create healthier working environments and cultures for all professional drivers – leading to improvements in drivers’ health and road safety.
