HHP symposium

The department of Health and Human Performance held its annual Research Symposium on Oct 29th and 30th, 2013 in the Rockwell Pavilion - M.D. Anderson Library at the University of Houston. About 750 audience members listened as more than 30 HHP graduate students and faculty presented their research on a wide variety of topics, including obesity, physiology and sports medicine. Below are some images from the event. (Click here for more information on each presenter and their research topics.)

A highlight of the event was the “elevator speech” contest during which students give a two minute informative and persuasive sales pitch to a panel of UH professors. The top three contestants receive funding to support their research. This year’s winner was Emily LaVoy, also a current recipient of the Dissertation Completion Fellowship, who described her research this way: “The focus of my dissertation research is whether we can use the immune-enhancing effects of exercise to improve cancer immunotherapy. Initial results appear to support this hypothesis, and my next goal is to identify what it is about exercise that may exert this beneficial effect.”
