Dr. Stacey Altman, chair of the Department of Kinesiology, has been elected to The American Kinesiology Association Board of Directors.
The board and an executive committee oversee the organization, which promotes kinesiology as a unified field of study and advances its many professional applications.AKA does this by advocating for kinesiology at national and international levels and by providing its member departments with resource materials, leadership and educational opportunities.
“This election demonstrates the high opinion her colleagues have for her and the leadership she provides to one of the best Kinesiology Departments in the country,” said Dr. Glen Gilbert, dean of the College of Health and Human Performance.
Altman will serve on the board for a three-year term from 2014 to 2017.
At ECU since 2002, Altman became chair of the Department of Kinesiology in 2008. Altman earned an undergraduate degree from Coastal Carolina University and a master’s at the University of Georgia. She earned a doctorate in law from the University of Alabama.
