Augusta University’s College of Education will host Kinesiology Research Day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, March 25. The day will highlight research from undergraduate and graduate kinesiology students.
Kinesiology is the scientific study of the anatomy, physiology, and mechanics of body movement, especially in humans. A bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology leads to careers in exercise; fitness, wellness, and health promotion; sport; and rehabilitation.
Dr. Danielle D. Wadsworth will be the keynote speaker. Wadsworth is an associate professor at Auburn University in the School of Kinesiology and director of the Exercise Adherence and Obesity prevention laboratory. Her research focuses on identifying environmental, psychological and social underpinnings of exercise adherence and translating these findings to effective evidence-based interventions, primarily for women and children.
