The Department's mission is to research, teach and apply knowledge related to movement, exercise and human occupation with the ultimate goal of enhancing human health, productivity, and quality of life.  Regular physical activity reduces the risk of developing or dying from some of the leading causes of illness and death in the United States, so the study of movement, exercise and occupation has the potential to dramatically impact health and quality of life.

SPOTLIGHT

Dr. Winterstein is Part of Multidisciplinary Research on Concussion Attitudes and Behaviors

Winterstein

A multidisciplinary team of University of Wisconsin—Madison researchers is receiving funding from the NCAA and U.S. Department of Defense to study the most effective ways to teach athletes and young adults about the importance of reporting when they have suffered a concussion. “This study will provide insight into the incidence of reported and unreported sports-related concussions and the attitudes, knowledge and behaviors for these at-risk young adults,” says Andrew Winterstein, a principal investigator with the project who heads the Department of Kinesiology’s athletic training program. The research project is titled, “Making it Stick: A Social Marketing Experiment to Alter Concussion Attitudes and Behavior.” It will build upon longstanding research in the areas of social marketing and design thinking to address challenges in existing efforts to improve concussion reporting.
