Attendees will be able to take part in immersive live workshops and demonstrations on topics such as cooling techniques and simulated environmental conditions.

Speaking about the Beds Talk, Dr Newell said: 鈥淭his event represents a crucial opportunity for us to come together and explore the adaptations necessary in our daily practices and routines to align with the reality of rising global temperatures. I am eager for attendees to leave the event not just informed, but also equipped with practical strategies for adjusting their exercise, hydration, and dietary habits to maintain optimum health and performance in a warmer climate.

鈥淥ur goal is to create a forum for sharing innovative ideas and evidence-based solutions that can help individuals and communities thrive in the face of these environmental changes. I look forward to welcoming everyone to what promises to be a thought-provoking and actionable evening.鈥

The workshops and demonstrations will take place in the 新澳门六合彩开奖结果's state-of-the-art laboratory spaces and facilities, with its specialised equipment and facilities for assessing human health risks and delivering exercise and diet interventions for health promotion.
