Kendall Selsky ’93, North Central College visiting assistant professor of health and physical education and exercise science program director, spoke at a continuing education session at the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Illinois State Personal Trainer Clinic held in Chicago Nov. 5. The topic she presented was titled “ACL Injury Prevention Techniques/Programs for Strength & Conditioning Professionals.”
Her session for strength and conditioning professionals provided an update on what’s known about prevention of anterior cruciate ligament injuries, which are devastating and all too common injuries for athletes. A practical session included identification of faulty movement patterns frequently seen in at-risk athletes and key preventive exercises.
Selsky has been teaching at North Central since 1999 in various roles. She has served as head athletic trainer (2000-2003, 2006-2007) and as an assistant athletic trainer (1999-2000, 2003-2005). She received a B.A. from North Central College in 1993 and an M.S. from Illinois State University.
