Members of the U.S. Olympic Training Center, Colorado Springs, will visit the Human Performance Laboratory at Marywood University for a training session on Tuesday, July 14, from 8 a.m.-3:30p.m. Kenneth W. Rundell, Ph.D., FACSM, Professor of Health Science and Director of Respiratory Research and the Human Physiology Laboratory, will provide training in proper techniques to diagnose asthma in elite athletes. A documented diagnosis is necessary for athletes to get a TEU-therapeutic exemption-to use medications during Olympic competition that would normally be banned.
