The American Kinesiology Association promotes and enhances kinesiology as a unified field of study and advances its many applications. AKA does this by advocating for kinesiology at national and international levels as well as by supporting its member departments by providing resource materials and leadership and educational opportunities for university administrators in kinesiology.
“This membership allows us to participate in the direction and future of our disciplines – kinesiology, exercise science, nutrition, health and physical education, and health science – at a national level,” said Dr. Steven Page, chair of the Department of Kinesiology and Health Science. “As a research institution, it’s crucial that we work with researchers, practitioners and educators to advance our fields of study.”
In the state of Georgia only three other colleges are members of the American Kinesiology Association.
