Great story about Exercise Science Alum

Ryan Caruso completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology in 2014. He left yesterday for a two month trip to Australia to raise money for Operation Smile: 

What a great story!

Interested in a career in Physical Therapy?

I received this message about information sessions for anyone interested in a career in Physical Therapy:

One will be on Jan 26th at 7 pm in BIO 2007, aimed at juniors and seniors.  

The other one will be on Feb 3rd at 6 pm in BIO 2007, aimed at freshmen and sophomores.  

The talks will be very similar so they don’t need to come to both and if they can only come to one tell them to come, even if they aren’t in that class.

NIH Research - Employment

Sarah Smyth, a KIN alum, sent this message to recruit folks to apply for the position she and her coworker are vacating. She also gave me permission to share her email address if anyone would like to follow up directly with her. Please contact me ( for Sarah's contact info.

I am a JMU Kinesiology alumnus, and I’m currently working as a clinical research assistant at the National Institutes of Health. A few full-time research positions are opening up this summer in the Diabetes, Obesity, and Endocrinology Branch (specifically in Dr. Kong Chen’s lab). Working at the NIH is an incredible opportunity, and graduate/health professional schools look favorably on the program. If you want some time off before heading back to school or you aren’t quite sure what your next step is, I highly recommend this program.
