TWU’s Sanborn honored by Texas Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine


DENTON — Dr. Charlotte (Barney) Sanborn, professor of kinesiology at Texas Woman’s University, recently received the 2007 Honor Award from the Texas Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine (TACSM).

Since 1992, the TACSM has given the Honor Award to recognize an individual who has made outstanding contributions to exercise science and sports medicine while working in the state of Texas.

“It was truly an honor to receive the award and also humbling to be recognized by TACSM,” Dr. Sanborn said. “The Texas Chapter is one of the premiere chapters of ACSM and has a rich history of leaders in the field of sports medicine.”

Dr. Sanborn conducts research on childhood obesity, women’s health, osteoporosis and athletic amenorrhea. She has taught at TWU for almost 20 years and currently serves as the chair of the TWU Kinesiology Department. She is active in numerous professional organizations and served as the research coordinator for the TWU Growing with EASE (Eating, Activity, Self-Esteem) — a transdisciplinary team of researchers/educators devoted to the prevention or amelioration of childhood obesity.

TACSM is a regional chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). ACSM is a multi-disciplinary professional and scientific society dedicated to the generation and dissemination of knowledge concerning the motivations, responses, adaptations and health aspects of persons engaged in sport and exercise. The largest sports medicine and exercise science organization in the world, ACSM has over 20,000 members worldwide.
