This week’s featured speaker for our 5th Annual Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium is John Cook. Cook is entering his 13th season as the head volleyball coach at the University of Nebraska –Lincoln. Prior to becoming the head coach at Nebraska, he was the head coach at the University of Wisconsin. Cook also has Olympic and championship experience in his coaching resume. During his tenure at Nebraska, I have had the opportunity to work with John and his team as the Biomechanical Consultant for the University of Nebraska Volleyball team.

“What goes on behind any successful athletic program is leadership. For the last 13 years, I have had the good fortune to work with John Cook, his coaches, support staff, and the team of individuals that have made the volleyball athletes he develops well-rounded, disciplined and ‘complete’. John’s passion for interconnectivity will ‘fire up’ the course attendees on the morning of the second day. Get your seat early!”

This week’s Interdisciplinary Integration featured speaker is Dr. Kris Berg. Dr. Berg is a Health, Physical Education & Recreation professor at the University of Nebraska - Omaha. His teaching interests include exercise in chronic illness and exercise in special populations. Dr. Berg will be presenting on day two of the symposium on asthma and exercise-induced asthma.

“The athletes’ ability to perform really depends on bronchial performance. What really is exercise-induced asthma? How does exercise induce bronchial constriction? Who really has it? And what considerations should be made when working with this athletic phenomenon? I can’t think of a more highly qualified person to answer these questions, other than Dr. Kris Berg. Should be an enlightening presentation for anyone who uses PRI principles in maximizing functional performance.” - Ron Hruska

This week’s Interdisciplinary Integration featured speaker is Eric Cressey, CSCS. Eric is president and co-founder of Cressey Performance, a facility located just west of Boston, MA.  A highly sought-after coach for healthy and injured athletes alike, Eric has helped athletes at all levels - from youth sports to the professional and Olympic ranks - achieve their highest levels of performance in a variety of sports.  Behind Eric’s expertise, Cressey Performance has rapidly established itself as a go-to high performance facility among Boston athletes - and those that come from across the country and abroad to experience Cressey Performance’s cutting-edge methods.  Eric is perhaps best known for his extensive work with baseball players, with more than 80 professional players traveling to Massachusetts to train with him each off-season.

“We are very excited to have Eric attending and presenting at this year’s Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium! It’s obvious to us that Eric has earned a lot of respect in his profession, and I think it is in part to his respect for the “whole” athlete. Eric’s experience with athletes of all levels and his commitment to continuing education in biomechanics of the athlete (including Postural Restoration) will enhance his presentation, Long Term Management of the Overhead Athlete.” - Ron Hruska
Eric will be presenting on day two of our symposium.

Mike Arthur, CSCS is the keynote speaker and will lead off day one of the Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium on April 11th, 2013! Mike is in his 36th year with the Nebraska Athletic Department, and in January 2008, he was promoted to Director of Strength and Conditioning for the athletic department. Ron has known Mike for over 15 years.

“I am very excited to have Mike as the keynote speaker for our 2013 symposium! During the years of working with Mike, I have observed some strong characteristics - Mike is consistent and a predictable thinker. He is one of the nicest guys I know and is respectful of everyone’s suggestions and approaches. I admire his open-mindedness in implementing strength and conditioning concepts. Mike is very analytical and his analytical mind makes him evidence-based and therefore he gravitates towards programs based on strong scientific backgrounds. Mike will offer a personal perspective, based on his 36 years of experience in the field and his success with integrating PRI into his program. His strong belief of safe strength training with an emphasis on injury prevention is why Mike is our 2013 keynote speaker. ” -Ron Hruska
