Kristi McClary King, Ph.D., CHES, is an associate professor in the Exercise Physiology and Community Health Programs in the Department of Health and Sport Sciences at the University of Louisville in Kentucky. Dr. King’s research focuses on the improvement of health through community-based physical activity and nutrition interventions and policies. Dr. King earned her Ph.D. from Southern Illinois University Carbondale, completed postdoctorate training in physical activity and public health research with the University of South Carolina’s Arnold School of Public Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and is a Certified Health Education Specialist.

Daniela Terson de Paleville, Ph.D., received a Ph.D. in Physiology and Biophysics and an M.S. in Exercise Physiology from the University of Louisville in Kentucky, and a B.S. in Exercise Sciences and Physical Education from the Instituto de Educación Física Jorge Coll, in Mendoza, Argentina. She teaches Advanced Exercise Physiology, Neuromuscular Exercise Physiology, and Anatomy and Physiology courses. Her research interests include motor control and exercise-induced neuroplasticity. In particular, Dr. Terson de Paleville has investigated the effects of activity-based therapy on motor control after spinal cord injury. Her present research project involves the assessment of the effects of exercise training in elementary and middle school students on balance, visual efficiency, motor proficiency, motor control, and behavior in the classroom and at home. Dr. Terson de Paleville is interested in elucidating any links between physical activity and academic skills and performance.
