Strength for Life and Radio Italia Uno

COTA SA’s Strength for Life was a focus of Radio Italia Uno’s special program that will be broadcast in late July.

Clara Tait, Cultural Diversity Officer, spoke about the many aspects of this wonderful exercise program for people aged 50+, highlighting the various activities that have taken place in making it more accessible and more culturally appropriate for members of our diverse community.

She was joined by an Italian Strength for Life participant, Giuliana, who gave brilliant firsthand perspective of her experience, having been enrolled in the program for the last 6 months.

Many thanks to Radio Italia Uno’s Mark Aiston, who conducted the interview and to Giuliana for her great testimonial!
