Speaker: Dr. Mats Hallgren is an Assistant Professor in Public Health Sciences at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. He has written extensively on associations between physical activity and mental health, and led one of the largest trials of exercise training for depression (REGASSA). Dr. Hallgren has also recently published on links between sedentary behaviour (too much sitting/reclining) and depression.
Dr. Hallgren’s current work focuses on Alcohol Use Disorder, and how physical activity and exercise can be used to prevent and treat this common health problem that affects approximately 10-20% of adults in high-income countries. He will describe the background and rationale for his ongoing randomized controlled trial of exercise for Alcohol Use Disorder and current progress. Dr. Hallgren will also highlight practical issues from the trial that are relevant to many randomized controlled trials and should be of interest to a diverse audience.
