The effect of dance on risk factors associated with falls in older adults
Emily recently graduated from the University of Leeds with a first class honours in Sport and Exercise Science. During her degree, she was awarded the Laidlaw Research and Leadership Scholarship where she completed a two-year research project, undertook leadership development and presented at national and international conferences. Emily’s experience of playing football on a scholarship in America for three years prior to her degree, ignited her passion to support others. She has provided sports coaching to youths in Fiji, strength and conditioning coaching to university and Great Britain rowers and engaged older adults in dancing, which provided inspiration for her paper.
