The Kinesiology Program at New Mexico State University recently had multiple student research experience works accepted for presentation. These works will be presented at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Southwest Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine in Long Beach CA. Chartered in 1985, the function of the Southwest Chapter of ACSM is to “promote and integrate scientific research, education and practical applications of sports medicine and exercise science to maintain and enhance physical performance, fitness, health and quality of life.” These 2017 successes are a great follow-up to 2016 when NMSU Kinesiology was honored with a finalist selection for the outstanding student research award (Eryn Murphy) and the 2016 outstanding poster award (Kelcie Gerry). The students and their 2017 presentation titles may be found below:
