Regents Reaffirm 10-Year Vision, Approve New Graduate ProgramsAug. 5, 2004
Beginning in fall 2004, the department of health, human performance and recreation in Baylor's School of Education will offer a doctor of philosophy program in exercise, nutrition and preventive health, one of the first such multidisciplinary doctoral programs in the United States. The program will be built upon the international reputation of the Exercise and Sports Nutrition Lab (ESNL) that relocated to Baylor in summer 2002 and Baylor's Center for Exercise, Nutrition and Preventive Health Research. The new doctoral program will provide a strong research and statistics core, as well as clinical rotations in nine other academic areas, to develop health science researchers who can conduct large-scale multidisciplinary studies in settings, such as universities, medical schools, health organizations, governmental agencies and private industry.
