Meet the Member
Byron LaGary Carter, DA, NP-C
Meet ACSM member Byron LaGary Carter, DA, NP-C, interim dean and professor in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences at Valdosta State University. For Dr. Carter, regular physical activity is the catalyst to reach one’s full potential—mind, body and soul. His passions for patient care and physical activity to treat/ prevent medical conditions prompted him to get involved with ACSM’s Exercise is Medicine® (EIM) initiative. It also helped him facilitate a partnership between ACSM, EIM and the American Association of Nurse Practitioners to advance the integration of physical activity assessment, counseling and referral into routine clinical practice.
