A health and human performance major invites individuals between the ages of 18 and 24 to participate in a summer research study that will compare the health benefits of a walking program to the health benefits gained from a vigorous exercise program.
The researcher, Kevin Hovde recently received a grant from the Young Scholars Program to fund his project that will take place from Friday, May 25, to Friday, July 27. He will work closely with faculty mentor Dr. Bridget Duoos, Health and Human Performance.
This research project has been approved by the university’s Institutional Review Board.
The Young Scholars Program awards individual grants to undergraduate students at the University of St. Thomas who are interested in spending an entire summer working closely with a professor on a significant research project or creative activity. These grants are designed to give students the time and resources they need for meaningful reflection and in-depth inquiry into a problem or issue of interest both to them and their faculty mentor.
