Dr. Fowler, journalism students, in international media
Dr. Gil Fowler, Journalism, and four journalism students on a recent trip to Kuwait, garnered substantial media exposure for ASU. Fowler and students Sara Gay, Stephanie Fischer, Andrew Geswein, and Andrew Wilson appeared on a Kuwait radio program Sunday, and quotations from Fowler and the students appeared in a Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) release, which was picked up by The Kuwait Times, the Arabian Gulf's first daily paper, and MENAFN, the Midle East North Africa Financial Network. Fowler and the students were visiting the Gulf University for Science and Technology (GUST).

Dr. Elgelid presents at meeting
Dr. Staffan Elgelid, Physical Therapy, presented "Gait from a Feldenkrais Perspective," during the fall meeting of the Arkansas Chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association, held in Little Rock. The presentation observed gait from a first-person perspective, paying particular attention to awareness of gait, and then reviewed options to alter gait, focusing on rehabilitation and athletic performance. Elgelid is a practitioner of the Feldenkrais Method of somatic education, a form of mind-body development focusing on the relationship of movement and thought.
