Education: B.S.East Stroudsburg University, 1984 M.A. Wake Forest University University, 1986 PhD Temple University, 1991 WFU Courses: Human Physiology (HES 350/650) Cardiovascular Disease Management (HES 761) Clinical Exercise Testing and Prescription (HES 765) Professional Contributions: Active member and Fellow of both the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Association of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation for 15+ years. Published more than 50 articles/chapters in exercise physiology or cardiology journals/books and co-authored a textbook entitled “Coronary Artery Disease: Essentials of Prevention and Rehabilitation Programs”. Given hundreds of research and clinical presentations in numerous states and countries (Italy, Japan, Korea, Singapore). Clinical Section Editor (7th ed.) of the ACSM Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription and is Cardiovascular Section Editor for ACSM’s Exercise in the Management of Chronic Disease and Disability (3rd ed.). Research and clinical work are in the area of heart failure exercise physiology and cardiovascular disease prevention/rehabilitation and current funded research focuses on the effect of exercise interventions on aging, obesity, and heart failure.
