KAAP Featured Research

Shake it Off, a local nonprofit with the mission of supporting the science and practice of exercise for people with Parkinson’s disease, has been funding research at the University of Delaware since 2013. The organization approached Chris Knight, associate professor in Kinesiology & Applied Physiology, to offer a donation to continue the development of the Speed Geezer exercise program. Students lead small groups of people with Parkinson’s through a 4-6 week exercise program to help them combat the effects of the disease. Visit https://www.chs.udel.edu/ for more info.
