Sports Medicine

This week (November 30-December 8) we had one class meeting. During the class meeting on December 1, we did peer reviews on our Heart Disease Project. We reviewed two of our classmates projects by filling out a rubric for their project and giving them constructive comments. It was helpful to have another person look at my project and give me some advice. I also thought it was fun to see my classmates ideas. Both of the people’s blogs that I reviewed were super good, and I learned a lot!

After the peer review, Mrs. Kahn explained what our final project for the semester would be. Our final projects are based on our job shadowing experience. We have to create a presentation that describes the job we shadowed in detail so that others can get a good idea of what the job…

This week in my sports medicine class we have been learning about heart disease, specifically in women’s heart disease. We earned about the causes, risk factors, and the various ways to improve heart disease. Later in the week we created a Heart Disease PSA and project in our individual groups. I really enjoyed learning about this topic because it affects me as a female and is important to know about as it pertains to my own health.

Here is a current event about women’s heart disease.

This week’s cameo blogger is Meaghan U.!  One of the first characteristics you will notice about Meaghan is that she has the best attitude, no matter what she has encountered that day.  She is always prepared for class and ready to take on that day’s lab or activity.  I’m glad she is taking this class, because she has unfortunately experienced a sports related injury that has impacted her ability to participate in soccer (read more about this in her post on Athletic Trainers).  Please check out her overview of our class last week and feel free to comment on her website!

We have had a lot going on this week! First of all, at the beginning of last week, we finished posting about a lab on heart rates and what it looks like to have a heart attack. We learned more skills about using technology and other applications to get our data across and to use the technology to our advantage to learn more about our hearts.

We also started to learn a lot more about heart disease. Mrs. Kahn walked us through a powerpoint she made about women and heart disease and it was incredibly interesting to hear more of the facts. We learned that heart disease is the leading cause of death in women in the nation (more than the next 5 reasons combined!). This really opened my eyes to how serious heart disease is and how important it is that I get educated and spread the word.
