(Virtual) Faculty Cross Talk: Human Performance + Sport
Faculty Cross Talk: Human Performance + Sport
The science of human performance is rapidly evolving as major advances in research, innovation and technology contribute to a greater understanding of the intersections between physical and behavioral health. Medical breakthroughs combined with the proliferation of wearable technologies and other highly customizable solutions can help elucidate the causal factors of injury, improve prevention, recovery, resilience and longevity--fueling higher performance and inspiring purposeful living.
Research in this field benefits people from all walks of life, from athletes seeking to maintain a competitive edge to military veterans recovering from injury or post-traumatic stress disorder to a broad spectrum of individuals wishing to recover or enhance mental and physical performance.
Global Sport Institute invites ASU faculty and graduate students to participate in our Faculty Cross Talk: Human Performance Sciences. Hear from ASU Assistant Vice President for Strategic Initiatives Drew Trojanowski on a university-wide effort to mobilize a broad consortium of academic, philanthropic, and industry partners engaged in the comprehensive, fully integrated exploration and advancement of human performance and recovery.
Our goal is to map the university’s assets in this field and apply them to launching the premier institute for human performance, dedicated to transforming our current understanding of performance and behavioral health through the lenses of science and wellness.
Following a brief 20-minute speaker presentation, participants can share ideas, research and projects to form new connections and collaborations.
Helpful ideas around the topic of Human Performance may include:
•How can military veterans and athletes use human performance science to improve physical and mental health after injury?
•What other constituencies benefit most from advancements in human performance sciences (e.g., athletes, active military, students, skilled workers, elderly)?
•How can ASU collectively translate knowledge into action for these various constituents?
•What opportunities exist for collaboration across units in this field?
