Nine doctoral students attend National Academy of Kinesiology conference

students_NAK.jpgNine Kinesiology doctoral students embraced an opportunity to attend the opening evening events of the National Academy of Kinesiology conference held in Minneapolis on Thursday, September 15. Students heard keynote speaker Dr. Richard Troiano from NIH speak on grant funding opportunities for Kinesiology researchers, and afterward they enjoyed a social reception with top scholars in the field. Based on the students' enthusiasm and feedback, it was an invaluable and rare opportunity to interact with the iconic leaders in the field of Kinesiology. The students who attended were (clockwise from top): Lindsay Kipp, Alison Phillips, Emily Houghton, Julia Dutove, Amanda Williams, Eric Statt, Frank Koslucher, Jessica Holst, and Tony Mayo.

The dual purpose of the National Academy of Kinesiology is to encourage and promote the study and educational applications of the art and science of human movement and physical activity, and to honor by election to its membership persons who have contributed significantly to the study and application of the art and science of human movement and physical activity. All senior faculty in the School of Kinesiology are elected Fellows in the Academy (Ji, Kane, Konczak, Leon, Stoffregen, Wade, Weiss) and Maureen Weiss is serving as president of the organization for 2011-2012.
