We’re pleased to welcome our latest PhD student, Leanne Tyson, to the Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research!

Physical activity and asthma

Regular physical activity is considered an important component in the overall management of asthma.

However, studies have found that patients with asthma are less physically active compared to people without the condition, possibly due to fear of triggering symptoms.

Leanne’s PhD project

Based at the University of East Anglia, Leanne’s PhD involves the development and feasibility testing of a scalable behavioural change intervention to promote physical activity among sedentary adults with moderate to severe asthma.
