Approximately 10 students from the HPPE majors club attend the mini-conference for Health and Physical Educators held at SUNY Cortland on Friday, October 9, 2009 from 9:00-2:00 p.m. A variety of sessions ranging from curriculum mapping to using the PE Profile in the classroom were presented. Our students had the opportunity to participate in sessions that were of interest to them. In addition, this conference provided an opportunity for our students to network with Health and Physical Educators from different school districts. Overall, this was a positive experience for our students. Raj Subramaniam
