50th Anniversary Peter V. Karpovich Lecture – Exercise Physiology Research at Springfield College: Then and Now

Oct 11, 2023 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The School of Physical Education, Performance, and Sport Leadership presents the 50th Anniversary of the Peter V. Karpovich Lecture, 1973-2023

Delivered by Samuel A.E. Headley, PhD, ACSM-CCEP, ACSM-RCEP, EIM-3, FACSM
Springfield College Professor of Exercise Science and Director of Exercise Physiology, Department of Exercise Science and Athletic Training

In this lecture in honor of Dr. Karpovich, Samuel Headley, PhD, will highlight some of the important exercise physiology research that he completed as a faculty member at Springfield College. Headley will then share the relevant exercise physiology research that his research groups have collaborated on at the College since 1993 to the present.

This research covers lifestyle interventions, such as diet and exercise training, to treat chronic, noncommunicable diseases. These chronic conditions particularly impact minority health (hypertension and chronic kidney disease). Headley will end his remarks with an exciting update on research studies planned on campus, which promise to engage the community, students, and colleagues.

This event is free and open to the public.
