Faculty Present at Regional Athletic Training Conference

Dr. Kirk Brumels and Meg Frens of the Hope College kinesiology faculty and athletic training staff made research presentations during the Annual Meeting and Symposium of the Great Lakes Athletic Trainers Association (GLATA), held on Thursday-Saturday, March 11-13, in Detroit. Dr. Brumels spoke twice, presenting "Video Game Based Rehabilitation" and "Wii and Video Game Based Rehabilitation for Back and Core Training." Professor Frens presented "Pilates Exercises for Back and Core Strengthening."

GLATA's professional education conference provides continuing educational opportunities for athletic training and health care professionals from across the country and especially those who reside in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin, and the provinces of Ottawa and Manitoba in Canada. Both Professors Brumels and Frens are active in professional associations and currently hold leadership positions in the Michigan Athletic Trainers' Society (MATS), and through their involvement in MATS were also active in planning the GLATA event. Dr. Brumels, who is an associate professor of kinesiology, athletic trainer and director of the athletic training program at Hope, is currently serving a two-year term as president-elect of MATS and will be president during 2011 and 2012. Professor Frens, who is an assistant professor of kinesiology and athletic trainer, is chairperson of the Professional Education Committee of MATS
