Title: 'Fit for pregnancy'
Speaker: Prof Lesley Smith - Professor of Women’s Public Health
It is well established that lifestyle behaviours such as alcohol consumption, smoking, sedentary time and obesity are major determinants of ill-health globally with significant economic cost to health services. An additional concern is that many women continue these health risk behaviours through pregnancy which have detrimental effects on maternal and infant health and wellbeing.
Lesley will present findings from her research exploring drinking, eating and physical activity behaviour of women during pregnancy and why it matters.

About the OpenCampus Programme
The OpenCampus Programme is the University of Hull's open access adult lifelong learning education programme. You can attend one session or all the sessions in a series. Sessions are informal and friendly and are not traditional public lectures. We do not charge for admission to sessions so we utilise the University's normal teaching spaces when they are not required for student teaching (lecture theatres and seminar rooms). We try to provide access to one of the University Cafes as part of the experience, but cannot guarantee this. We try to time sessions to meet the needs of the majority of our learners. We like to accommodate the needs of all attendees (seen and unseen needs) by having a comfort break at each session. We may offer specialist one off sessions for which we may make a charge.
We may also share other events at the University that may be of interest to our typical OpenCampus learners.
