April 11, 2023

ACSM From Around Field Science Series Open to Students

ACSM’s From Around the Field webinar series is designed to provide ACSM students and members an opportunity to learn more about the diverse science our members conduct. Join us for informal discussions with our ACSM members to hear more about what they study, the general research methodology they use and some of the interesting results their research is generating. In April, Erin Talbert, Ph.D., and Ashley Freeman, M.S., from the University of Iowa, will discuss changes in body composition in pancreatic cancer patients, including some new data suggesting that a sexual dimorphism exists. Join us on April 20, from noon to 1 p.m. EDT for this interesting discussion. If you can’t join us live, register and we will send you the recording. FREE for ACSM members.
