This award is presented to members of the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research Editorial Board in recognition of their service to the association.
Haley Bergstrom received a B.S. (2009) in Exercise Science from Doane University, and a M.S. (2011) and Ph.D. (2014) from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She is currently an Associate Professor at the University of Kentucky in the Department of Kinesiology and Health Promotion. Her research explores questions related to the mathematical modeling of human performance and the non-invasive assessment of muscle function and fatigue. These methodologies are used to examine exercise and nutritional interventions to delay the onset and mitigate the effects of fatigue during anaerobic and aerobic exercise. This involves the non-invasive assessment of neuromuscular function and motor unit behavior, acute and chronic cardiovascular, metabolic, and perceptual responses to resistance, sprint, and endurance training, as well as and the effects of nutrition and dietary supplementation on health and human performance across the lifespan. She is a senior associate editor for the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research and is a certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with distinction (CSCS*D) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.View Press Release
