Students in Kinesiology and Health Studies got to share their latest research at their annual Research Day, held on Friday April 1, 2016.

“This is a unique avenue to bring together all facets of everything we do. It showcases and highlights the wide variety of student research in Kinesiology and Health Studies,” says Darren Candow,  Professor and Associate Dean of Graduate Studies and Research.

The highlight of the day included Three Minute Thesis presentations by 19 student groups. Participants had just three minutes to explain the significance of their research – and then take questions. This exercise fosters effective presentation and communications skills.

Topics explored included such topics as physical activity participation among children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, nutritional supplements, passion of softball players, and links between sedentary behaviour and depression.  

This was the fourth annual Research Day.

“This day is one of the most effective ways to emphasize knowledge translation. It allows us to promote the Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies and the University of Regina to the wider community,” Candow says.
