Sports Medicine and Fitness Technology (SMFT) students at Keiser University’s Jacksonville campus were recently thankful to gain insights from Mindy Black, a Registered Dietitian and Director of Performance Nutrition with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Coordinated by Instructor and Program Director Dr. Ryan Fairall, the virtual presentation afforded Nutrition in Health and Exercise students the opportunity to learn more about the profession as Black shared her daily experiences working with and fueling high-level National Football League (NFL) athletes. “The information gained throughout the class and as part of the lecture has benefited me and athletes in my youth football program tremendously. I’ve learned how to make healthy eating both fun and exciting, and can already see an improvement in my athletes’ output on the field,” said Calvin Dawson, an SMFT student.
Keiser University’s Bachelor of Science degree in Sports Medicine and Fitness Technology focuses on advanced health and fitness assessment, prescription, and lifestyle modification. The program provides information on health risk factors, exercise leadership, biomechanics of movement, physiological adaptations to exercise, injury prevention, corrective exercise, business management, and ethics in sport.
