We are sad to share the passing of exercise physiology student, Jake Boykin. Jake was highly involved in his department, well-respected by his peers and professors, and a prodigous athlete in his own right. He won the 2023 USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championship time trial.

Tomorrow, friends and family will participate in a memorial bike ride in Jake's honor, taking place at the Chaires Community Center located at 4768 Chaires Cross Road. The event starts at 5:30 PM with a 10-mile "full-gas smash," followed by a memorial, with a casual bike ride afterwards. For more information, please contact Jason Hohensee at jason.h.hohensee(at)gmail.com.

Wearable technology shows promise in early detection of COVID-19 among FSU athletes - Florida State University News 09/06/2023

A research team at the Institute of Sports Sciences and Medicine at FSU found that wearable technology is useful for early detection of COVID-19 infection among female athletes.

Wearable technology could predict COVID-19 infection through changes in respiratory rate three days before a positive test, and changes in heart rate variability and resting heart rate the day before a positive test.

Wearable technology shows promise in early detection of COVID-19 among FSU athletes - Florida State University News The research team equipped 113 NCAA Division I female student-athletes with WHOOP bands and then monitored them for changes.
