Dr. Melissa Alexander Named Delegate to Special Olympics

On February 6-11th, Dr. Melissa Alexander from the Department of Exercise Science and Physical Education attended the Special Olympics Winter World Games as a delegate.  Based on her research regarding the development of social skills in Special Olympic athletes, Special Olympics International invited Dr. Alexander to attend the games so that she could network with other researchers from around the world.  While at the games, she not only spoke with other colleagues, but also had the opportunity to interact with representatives from Special Olympics International, Special Olympic athletes, and families of Special Olympic participants.
