Exercise Science student and Club President, Riley Engstrom was accepted into the University of Michigan’s Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program. He spent several weeks last summer working with researchers on a health coaching program. A physician office was piloting the use of health coaching in their primary care office. Riley was able to work closely with them as well as make suggestions for future investigation and use of Exercise Science students as interns as they look to potentially expand the program.
Students from the Exercise Science Club visited Grand Valley State University on Friday, March 20. Dr. Steve Glass met with the students and provided a tour. Students were able to see two exercise testing and research labs as well as see some of the research modalities and tools. Some of them included cardiac stress testing equipment, a hydrostatic weighing tank, a blood analyzer, force plates, and muscle electromyography. The tour also included a brief visit to the Recreation Center.
