Dr. Peter Hosick, Associate Professor in the Exercise Science and Physical Education department, recently spoke at the inaugural New Jersey American College of Sports Medicine Conference held at Rider University on April 29, 2022. His lecture was entitled, “Elevate Your Education and Career Through Collaboration and the MARC.” He spoke about the importance of research collaboration and how involvement in state and regional professional organizations is crucial to support collaborative endeavors and professional development.
The conference included professional speakers, a fitness walk through Rider University’s new fitness trail, student poster presentations, and Rider’s Science Friday presentation.
Dr. Hosick is a physiologist whose research focuses on metabolic and cardiovascular responses to various stressors, exercise being one primary example. Much of his current research involves the assessment of cardiovascular fitness (VO2max), body composition, and endocrine response to some sort of physical activity or exercise. He also supports student research projects and has several ongoing projects to explore the metabolic, endocrine, and cardiovascular adjustments in response to physiological perturbations in normal and overweight individuals.
