Pulmonary Patients – Eat and Move Right – Learn How Tomorrow, Better Breathers

Better Breathers and Harrison Medical Center have teamed up for a packed educational program with two featured speakers.  Tomorrow!

Dietician Leah Werner, Harrison Medical Center, ‘Eating to Breathe Easier.’

Kinestiologist Aaron Norton, a specialist in ‘Energy and Movement’.

(Kinesiology is the study of human and animal movement, performance, and function by applying the sciences of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, psychology, and neuroscience. Applications of kinesiology in human health include the rehabilitation professions, such as physical and occupational therapy, as well as applications in the sport and exercise industries. Kinesiology is a field of scientific study, and does not prepare individuals for clinical practice. A baccalaureate degree in kinesiology can provide strong preparation for graduate study in biomedical research, as well as in professional programs, such as allied health and medicine.)

The world’s first kinesiology department was launched in 1967 at the University of Waterloo, Canada – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinesiology
