OSHF is pleased to continue its partnership with Heart Wise Exercise and the University of Ottawa Heart Institute to offer specialized professional development on the fundamentals of exercise and chronic disease.

Heart Wise Exercise (HWE) was created by the University of Ottawa Heart Institute in response to overwhelming evidence supporting the ‘exercise as medicine’ concept.  HWE works with community physical activity providers to designate facilities and programs where individuals can exercise regularly to manage or limit the effects of a chronic health condition.  HWE offers training for fitness and related health professionals to assist in the delivery of such programs and to communicate recommendations for safe, heart-healthy exercise.

Supplemented by online learning, training seminars will be hosted at locations across Ontario to help allied health and fitness practitioners better meet the physical activity needs of individuals with chronic conditions.
