The award winning Hilliard Discussions are back! But, there's a twist... Rather than the typical short lecture format, the Hilliard Discussions will be hosted as a debate.
What will this look like, you ask? Well, we will invite two experts on opposing sides of a certain topic in the area of sports medicine and human performance. Then, they will debate and respectfully argue their points backed by evidence from their research/experience. Sounds fun, I know!
Hilliard Discussion 12 (HD12) has been postponed until Fall 2022 due to COVID-19! More information regarding the exact date and time will be released soon. Click here for the pre-registration link for HD12.
What is the topic you ask? Our debate topic is "The KETO diet is NOT the best diet for athletes" With concern about immune functioning over the past two years, exercise has been touted as a way to increase immune strength. So, join our two speakers as they debate this intriguing topic... and participate by asking questions and taking part in our opinion polls!
Professor Louise Burke (above; link to Bio) from Australian Catholic University will be arguing the "Pro" side of the question and Professor Peter Brukner (below; link to Bio) from LaTrobe University will be arguing the "Con" side of the question.
