LIU Post Physical Education Professor Announces Get Moving NY Event

Press Releases

Brookville, NY - April 26th, 2013 - Dr. Nana Koch, an associate professor in LIU Post’s Department of Health, Physical Education and Movement Science, will represent the university at the first ever “Get Moving NY" event to be held at Freeport High School on Saturday, May 4, 2013.

An opportunity for families to enjoy fun activities together, and promote health and physical fitness in the general community, the event begins at 9 a.m. with a community driven Walk of Peace, beginning and ending at Freeport High School, and a Wellness Fair and the Fun Family Health and Fitness activities immediately following the Peace Walk. 

“I'll be hosting a table for LIU Post where I'll answer questions about health and physical education programs, and iCan bike summer programs sponsored by our Center for Community Inclusion,” said Dr. Koch. “We’re very excited to be represented -- hundreds of people are expected to attend the Walk of Peace and then stay for the Get Moving NY event.”

In June, LIU Post’s Center for Community Inclusion will team up with iCan Shine, a nonprofit organization that teaches children with disabilities to ride conventional two-wheel bicycles through its iCan Bike program. Formerly known as Lose the Training Wheels, this program has been offered by CCI several times in recent years.

In addition to her responsibilities at LIU Post, Nana Koch, Ed.D. has consulted with school districts and given keynotes at conferences aimed at decreasing obesity and increasing physical activity and healthy nutritional practices in the schools. Recently, she has been a  consultant to the Rockland County Health Department and the Rockland Teachers’ Center Institute, where she helped to create and teach “Learning in Motion,” a professional development program for school teachers that trained them to use physical activity to teach academic content in all subject areas.

The fitness day is initiated by the New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, and being sponsored by the Nassau Zone, a regional offshoot of the NYS association. Nassau Zone’s mission is to support, encourage and provide guidance to professionals throughout Nassau County in developing and conducting quality programs in Health, Physical Education, Recreation & Dance.

According to Dr. Koch, the day is designed to encourage families to get moving and get fit as a way to reduce the incidence of obesity. The day will include a variety of presentations designed for family fun, by among others:  the United States Tennis Association; Drums Alive, a national circus arts  an organization that promotes drumming to various rhythms as a group fitness experience; healthy food presentations; and a wellness fair.

This is a great idea. It is only education that will change the way that people treat their own bodies. These kids deserve better lives than one's filled with obesity and obesity-related problems.
