the collaborations

Peninsula Medical School: 

Space To Move is delighted to be hosting 1st year medical students from Peninsula Medical School at various sessions throughout the academic year as part of their curriculum. We couldn't have been more pleased that the lovely people at Peninsula totally understood our ethos and drive to share how much benefit can be had (both physical and mental) from movement based exercise.

 

By collaborating in this way to provide evidence of these health benefits to the doctors of the future we all hope to alleviate not just individual suffering but also pressure on the healthcare system and over-reliance on prescription medication.
