Regional Chapter News: NEACSM Spring Meeting Recap

The New England Chapter of ACSM (NEACSM) held its annual spring meeting on March 26, themed “Celebrating Excellence and Leadership in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine: Past, Present, Future” at Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) in New Britain, Conn. Regarding the theme, one interesting historical item to note regarding a special connection with CCSU is that a founder and leader of ACSM, Dr. Josephine Rathbone, began her career there in the early 1920s. She worked in health and physical education at what was then known as the Normal School. The Normal School is now known as Central Connecticut State University and the department name has changed to Physical Education and Human Performance. At this, their most recent spring meeting which is almost 100 years later, five current or past presidents of ACSM shared personal insights on their professional work and leadership experiences. Presenters at the meeting included current ACSM President Carol Ewing Garber, Ph.D., FACSM; ACSM Past President Janet Walberg Rankin, Ph.D., FACSM; President-elect Lawrence E. Armstrong, Ph.D., FACSM; Robert C. Cantu, M.D., FACSM; and Russell R. Pate, Ph.D., FACSM. For more information, please contact the NEACSM chapter.
