Associate Professor of Physical Education Sue Viscomi received a $5,000 NCAA Division III Initiative Grant (the maximum award) in the category of student-athlete welfare. Her proposal was titled "The Nutrition and Performance Connection."
The primary objectives include:
1) to educate student-athletes, as well as students in general, about proper nutrition.
2) to educate students, coaches, and trainers alike regarding the warning signs of disordered eating.
3) to heighten campus awareness about disordered eating, recognition and resources for help.
A keynote speaker, Jennifer Doane, will be on Hamilton's campus October 27 and 28 to begin addressing this topic.
Viscomi is the senior woman administrator for Hamilton College's athletics department.
