Academy, CPSC stress exercise and safety issues

Nicholas A. DiNubile, MD, represented the Academy at a press conference arranged by the U.S. Consumer Protection Safety Commission (CPSC) to announce a study showing people age 65 and older are continuing to remain active in sports and exercise. Dr. DiNubile commented on the need for people to remain active and to follow safety precautions while exercising and participating in recreational activities. The CPSC and Academy collaborated on a patient education brochure, "Keep active and safe at any age," that is available for purchase by contacting the Academy's customer service department at (800) 626-6726.
