During the 1 hour session you will hear from Dr. Dobrosielski with a class aiming to expand the attendees understanding of the effects of diet and exercise on OSA and to discuss how current knowledge can inform treatment strategies to reduce cardiovascular disease risk among obese, OSA patients.
Dr. Dobrosielski is an Associate Professor of Exercise Science in the Department of Kinesiology at Towson University in Maryland. Prior to joining the Towson faculty in 2012, he was an Instructor in Medicine at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, where he led research that established the effectiveness of diet and exercise for reducing obstructive sleep apnea severity in older adults. In 2016 he was awarded a NIH Academic Research Enhancement Award to determine whether structured exercise serves as an effective countermeasure to the cardiovascular burden often observed in obese adults suffering from sleep apnea. He is certified by the American College of Sports Medicine as a clinical exercise physiologist and has over 20 years of experience implementing exercise programs for clinical populations. Dr. Dobrosielski currently serves as the President of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine. He earned his PhD from Louisiana State University in 2007.
