President-Elect of the Research Consortium

College of Health

University of Utah

I am very pleased to share with you the research abstracts for the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance National Convention and Exposition to be held March 27-31,2001. The Research Consortium program is outstanding and continues the Alliance's commitment to research and the importance of sharing research findings that advance new ideas and understandings and help to shape the best practices.

The symposia include: acute effects of stretching on strength and power performance; using published physical activity fitness data; neuromuscular control in sport performance; educational reform, student achievement, and professional development; assessing motor skill performance and knowledge using portfolios; maintaining the spirit of the game from a female perspective; and measuring perceived exercise and physical activity barriers for individuals with disabilities. In addition, five poster presentations and seven free communications sessions will be offered.

This year's presenters continue the tradition of excellence associated with these lectures. The presenters include Steven N. Blair for the R. Tait McKenzie lecture, Amelia M. Lee for the Charles H.
