Dr. William Adams: Named The American College of Sports Medicine New Investigator Award recipient!

Congratulations to Dr. Will Adams, the 2019 American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) New Investigator Award recipient! Dr. Adams will be presenting findings at the American College of Sports Medicine Annual Meeting in May on work done in the Department of Kinesiology investigating racial and ethnic differences in 24 hour hydration status among college-aged men and women.  Dr. Adams’ research found that  college-aged non-Hispanic Black men and women were inadequately hydrated compared to their non-Hispanic White counterparts when assessed over consecutive days. Furthermore, women were significantly less hydrated than men, independent of racial background.
