Kildare Sports Professor Advocates For Government Support In Fitness Education And Tax Rebates

David Nolan says properly utilising graduates in the field would relieve pressure on the healthcare system.

Financial support and education around exercise needs to be introduced by the government.

Kildare man and Assistant Professor of Sports and Exercise Science at DCU, David Nolan says properly utilising graduates in the field would relieve pressure on the healthcare system.
