Lastly, the 2012 TACSM Annual Meeting will be
held in Austin, March 1-2 at the University of
Texas JJ Pickle Research Center. Yes - it is the

attending particularly since now you know how to
get there, where to park, and where your hotel is.
While the ï¬nal meeting agenda is still being
conï¬rmed, the meeting will follow a similar
pattern as last year with the Student Bowl and
Student Posters on Thursday afternoon and
evening. The meeting will include a combination
of keynote lectures and concurrent sessions on
Friday. I am excited to announce that Dr. Irene
Davis has agreed to give the Raven Lecture. Dr.
Davis recently moved to a new position at
Harvard Medical School where she will be
launching the Spaulding National Running
Center. With training as a physical therapist and
a biomechanist who considers clinical and
applied aspects of human gait. I think she is the
ideal person to promote the interdisciplinary
nature of our ï¬eld.
I hope everyone is having a productive and
cooler fall season - Iâll see you in Austin!
