Alice Vodden: Outdoor Swimming and Public Health

Alice joins me to speak about her Masters in Public Health, and the important role she believes that outdoor swimming could play in this area.

Like many swimmers I’ve heard about the personal benefits of open water swimming, as well as experiencing this myself. Alice describes how this might work on a wider, population level, and the challenges that might bring. I was really interested to hear about the idea of doctors prescribing outdoor swimming!
