Below are a few pictures from our second annual Kinesiology and Health Sciences Alumni and Friends Reception that was held on Thursday, November 12. As part of the activities, alumni and friends interacted with students providing demonstrations of the research activities in the VCU RUN LAB and the Exercise Physiology Lab. Attendees networked with new and old friends while enjoying simple cuisine. Department Chair, Ed Acevedo, provided guests with an update of the department’s accomplishments and contributions to the community. The evening left us all with a greater understanding of and pride for the extraordinary contributions that the Kinesiology and Health Sciences Department has made in providing educational experiences for our students, conducting research on physical activity and health, and providing service to our community.
