Carma Sprowls Repcheck is interested in developing exercise prescriptions for a wide variety of populations including, cancer, osteoporosis, children and adolescents, older adults, over weight and obese, heart disease, pulmonary disease, and pregnant individuals. Her teaching reflects the backgrounds and or physiology of these conditions and how exercise intervention may lessen their impact and enhance health.
Additionally, as internship coordinator, her goal is to develop relationships between community organizations and businesses with the University of Pittsburgh, and specifically the Health and Human Development department. Developing a mutually beneficial relationship with these potential internships provides a new wave of talent for the site, and aids in developing skills and experiences for students.
