Kinesiology Student David Salas Presents at American College of Sports Medicine Conference

On October 16, 2015 Kinesiology major David Salas presented his research poster at the American College of Sports Medicine southwest regional conference in Costa Mesa, CA. Read about his conference experience below. Congratulations!

I felt that the SWACSM Annual Meeting was a unique opportunity for observing and becoming a part of our field of exercise physiology and health promotion.  Presentations ranged from evolutionary physiology to using different modes of finding and treating injury to improve performance and/or standard of living.  It allowed for me to also develop my presentation skills to a professional audience.  There was less explaining what the variables of the study were and more explaining the mechanisms behind those variables and why they would have an impact in our field.  It also created a link between institutions, creating new ties and bringing together old ones.  I met several physiologists from Cal, UCSF, USC, CSU Sacramento, CSU San Marcos, and many others.  I also got to see an old friend, Professor Bernard, who now teaches at CSU Stanislaus.    The SWACSM Annual Meeting was a unique experience with nothing but positive coming from it.
