Second Kinesiology Speaker Series featured Deborah Rohm Young
The School of Kinesiology continued its 2011-12 Colloquium Speaker Series on December 8, with Dr. Deborah Rohm Young of the University of Maryland speaking on "Multi-Level Predictors of Physical Activity in Early, Mid, and Late Adolescent Girls." Dr. Young also facilitated a seminar for graduate students on December 9 titled, "Navigating the Grants Game: Lessons Learned."
This research presentation was the final presentation of the Fall semester. The School will recommence the series in the Spring on March 29 with Dr. Jennifer Etnier of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Dr. Etnier will present a talk titled, "Move It or Lose It: Evidence for the Relationship Between Exercise and Cognition."
The Speaker Series is an initiative the School of Kinesiology launched this year to provide an opportunity to learn about cutting-edge research from distinguished scholars; to promote multidisciplinary ideas and collaborations; and to develop a culture in which the School celebrates their mutual commitment to the study of physical activity and health in the broadest sense.
