Biography

Andrea Du Bois, Ph.D., teaches a variety of undergraduate courses in the Department of Kinesiology. Her research has an overarching theme of physical activity across the lifespan, and her more recent research focused on the effectiveness of a multimodal physical activity program (golf) on the overall well-being of older military veterans. Du Bois hopes to combine her expertise in exercise physiology and biomechanics and her professional experiences in the fitness industry to further investigate movement and performance across the lifespan. Her research, her teaching in anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics, and other professional experiences help her bridge the gap between science and practice, and enable her to communicate the significance and practicality of the material she presents to her students. When not at APU, she enjoys time in the mountains with her husband and daughter.
