Presentation - Panel - Book Signing

If you work out or compete, it's hard to escape the fitness recovery buzz, from drinks and shakes to compression sleeves, foam rollers and sleep trackers. At a time when these products promise so much, book author Christie Aschwanden asks: Do any of them actually help the body recover and achieve peak performance?

Join us as Aschwanden talks about the strange science of sports recovery, based on research for her best-selling book, Good to Go. Her presentation will be followed by a panel discussion and book signing with refreshments.


This event is free and open to the public as part of the Health, Kinesiology & Recreation Seminar Series in collaboration with University of Utah Health Marketing and Communications.
