doctor dean smithNational University’s Research Department is sponsoring a talk by alumnus Dr. Dean Smith (DC ‘ 97) on his research: “Changes in postural control and dual task performance following an ultramarathon.” His talk will be held on Thursday, July 7th, at noon in room D139.

His study examines the effect of a single bout of prolonged aerobic exercise on traditional measures of postural control and dual task performance following an ultramarathon (trail) race.  The results demonstrate that multiple measures of postural control changed following the race as well as results from a two-choice reaction time task.

Dr. Dean Smith is on the clinical faculty of the department of kinesiology and health at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. The university is also where he earned an MS in exercise science and a PhD in psychology, brain and cognitive science (motor behavior). During his presentation he will talk about his current teaching and research. He also hosts podcast discussions with various chiropractic research experts at the site chiropracticscience.com, and will share more about the podcasts in his presentation as well.

In addition to his teaching and research, Dr. Smith is also a practitioner at Essence of Wellness in Eaton, Ohio.

“I encourage everyone to attend and meet our graduate Dr. Smith, who is not only generating original research, but also increasing awareness and understanding of our profession’s research to a wider audience of DCs,” says Dr. Gregory Cramer, dean of research at NUHS.
