Kinesiology/Exercise and Wellness Faculty and Research

Low levels of physical activity are predictive of poor health outcomes such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and obesity, but many people do not get the recommended amount of physical activity. At the College of Health Solutions, our faculty address some of the 21st century's biggest public health problems through their research. Research topics include physical activity assessment, fall prevention in older adults, how technology can promote physical activity, the effects of exercise on insomnia, and the role of exercise related to weight and obesity. Our faculty are invested in research to promote healthy lifestyles and reduce the physical, social and economic costs of unhealthy living, with an emphasis on physical activity to improve health.
