"As a health and fitness educator/lecturer, when I stand in front of the students to teach, it is no longer about me and how strong and fit I think I am or how much I think I know. My goal is to educate and prime them on safe and effective exercise routines, and to equip them with scientifically proven health information that they can utilize throughout their life’s journey."
Well said, Joy! 👏

Welcome to a new HES series, #SeniorSpotlights! Over the next couple months, we are going to be honoring the accomplishments and experiences of our graduating seniors in the HES minor programs.
First in the spotlight is Michelle Cobb! Here’s what Michelle has to say about her experience in the sports science minor:
“I loved this minor program because it gave me a more in depth view into the world of sports science and I cant wait to apply this information in my future in physical therapy. My favorite part of the minor program was learning more details about how my body functions as an athlete and being able to better equip myself and my teammates for competition because of it!”
Way to go, Michelle! 🐺🎉 ...
