Sports are common in many country’s cultures, and by association, so is sports research. The Kinesiology Department will host a discussion about conducting research overseas, which will include 8 minute digital presentations from researchers around the world. The researchers will speak to their country’s culture, the sports that are most followed, and the type of research they are conducting around sport and exercise. At the end, there will be time to speak to Americans who have (or are currently) completing research opportunities overseas.
March 1-2, 2019
Faculty, staff, and students from the Kinesiology Department will be traveling to Bend, OR for the American College of Sports Medicine Northwest Annual Meeting. The theme of this years’ conference is ‘Innovation, Application and Future of Physical Activity, Exercise and Sport.' The group will network with both current and new colleagues and support their collaborative research with the University of Oregon that is examining cardiopulmonary physiology. In addition to attending a breadth of academic presentations, the group will culminate this experience by hosting a departmental event where attendees will share the knowledge and experience they gained with those students who were not able to attend.
