Health shouldn't be an exclusive club

'Health is for all, wherever interests lie' says Dr Tim Lynch, a lecturer in physical education at the Plymouth Institute of Education. This interesting opinion piece focuses on the need to improve health education in schools, and presents the argument that coupled with good physical education, health can be seen as something in which everyone can take an active interest and something all of us can contribute towards. Too often, argues Dr Lynch, health is viewed as an exclusive club that only the select few can join. But in fact, we all need our health, and everyone can learn how to improve their health and fitness.

Here is Tim's complete article, which was originally published in the National Education Review for Australia.
