Speaker to address effects of diet and exercise on metabolic health

The Faculty of Human Kinetics Distinguished Speakers Series presents Jeff Horowitz delivering a free public lecture entitled “Exercise and Dietary Effects on Fat Metabolism that May Improve Metabolic Health,” at noon on Friday, November 11, in room 145, Human Kinetics Building.

Jeff HorowitzDr. Horowitz is an associate professor of movement science in the University of Michigan’s School of Kinesiology, and director of its Substrate Metabolism Laboratory.

He studies the regulation of fat, carbohydrate, and protein metabolism in humans, with particular interest in how exercise and diet affect energy metabolism. His research takes an integrated approach which makes it possible to associate cellular adaptations to exercise with clinical outcomes, and could lead to improved methods to treat chronic diseases or to advancements in “healthy aging.”
