|SOUTHEASTERN HOSTS KINESIOLOGY AND HEALTH STUDIES SYMPOSIUM
HAMMOND – The Southeastern Louisiana
University Department of Kinesiology and Health Studies will bring the
professional world to students March 18 with its first annual Arts and
Science Knowledge of Kinesiology and Health Studies Symposium (ASK KHS).
Scheduled from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in
the Student Union and Student Union Theatre, the symposium will feature
a wide range of topics including eating disorders, strength training, developing
community relations for professional sports teams, resume development and
Guest speaker for the day is Lanny
Boswell, director of strategic analysis, physical training consultant and
sports medicine researcher for the U.S. Naval Service Training Command.
Boswell will address supplementation and ergogenic aids. Others scheduled
to make presentations include new Southeastern football coach Dennis Roland
and professionals from North Oaks Health System, the New Orleans Zephyrs,
and the New Orleans Hornets.
“Something every student should do
during their college years is attend a professional meeting,” said Edward
Hebert, associate professor and head of the Department of Kinesiology and
Health Studies. “Every profession has professional organizations, and these
organizations publish items of interest to its members, and hold conventions,
conferences and meetings where they share information, learn, and develop
collegial relationships. It's often difficult for a student to attend one
of these meetings due to the travel, costs and missing classes, thus the
creation of ASK KHS.”
Other Southeastern faculty and staff
members addressing attendees will be Matt Moore, football strength and
conditioning coach; assistant professor Jennifer Jeansonne with an introduction
to research and the Soar initiative; professor Robert Kraemer with preparing
for graduate school, and career counselors Kim Foil and Beverly Sellers
on interview skills and resume building. Throughout the day, students from
health studies classes will also display works and make presentations.
A continental breakfast will be served
outside the theatre during the 8 a.m. registration and a jambalaya lunch
with drink will be available for $6.
