I also lead the ACSM Exercise Science Education interest group (more information here).

I write a weekly Health & Fitness column for the Aiken Standard and I have been a regular guest on TalkBack Live on ASTVI am also a semi-regular guest on the RadioMD show “Train Your Body” and a frequent source for the local media.
