Sheri Colberg, PhD, ADA 2013, Q11: How do you keep up your physical activity during conferences?

Dr. Colberg answers the question of how you can get exercise while constantly on the go as you are when at the American Diabetes Association (ADA) annual meeting. One tip she gives us is to be sure to bring your friends along as well as taking advantage of any fitness equipment at the hotel. She also advocates for cross-training and changes her routine frequently both to improve fitness and to keep things interesting.
