The discipline of kinesiology is the science and study of human movement. Human movement can be expressed as physical activity, sport, exercise, or play. Professor Urtel and his colleagues look at this across the human lifespan and at all ability levels. Professor Urtel focuses on school - age youth who spend most of their time during the week at school. Naturally, this is a great place to look at programs and interventions that not only focus on the health outcomes from physical activity, but the academic readiness and positive behavioral outcomes that are associated with consistent physical activity. On May 28, 2021 at 12noon (EST), Professor Urtel will engage a virtual audience in a conversation about the translational research that he is using to create a more comprehensive physical fitness program for school - aged youth.
