Faculty Introduction: Linda S. Pescatello

As a Professor of Kinesiology at the University of Connecticut (UConn), Storrs and a current researcher in the field, I focus on the study of exercise prescription to optimize health benefits. Through in-depth research, assessment and collaboration with my colleagues, we have since developed what is known as the online graduate ExRxcertificate program. 

Designed around what is widely known as the gold standard in the fields of sports medicine, exercise science, and health and fitness—ACSM’s GETP, this program gives individuals an opportunity to learn from and interact with the best experts in the field. Furthermore, the course’s learning environment helps to provide students with the unique opportunity to learn from leading experts who deliver course content completely virtually, as well as the ability to interact with their fellow classmates. 

Now, let’s get down to business. The world is discovering that exercise is medicine! That’s just a fact. In order to help meet the demand for continuing education in the exercise science field, I along with the University of Connecticut, are offering a certificate that can prepare you to take your career to the next level and capitalize on the growing exercise science, personal training, fitness and Kinesiology industries.
