Ellen deLara, Rick Burton explore "The Bully Culture in Sports"

What leads a person to become a bully? Is sports more or less a breeding ground for bullies than other avenues in life? If so, why? If less, why? Those were just some of the questions on the minds of listeners and panel moderators on the September 17 edition of HWTP Sports Talk Radio, a New York City-based weekly sports talk radio show. Associate professor of social work, Ellen deLara, and Falk Endowed Professor of Sport Management, Rick Burton, were the featured guest expert panelists for this roundtable discussion.

Falk Nutrition students consider Fresh Apples vs. Apple Fritters at the Great New York State Fair

The Great New York State Fair has come and gone and we hope everyone who attended the Fair had a blast. Our Falk Nutrition students had fun. They asked questions, tasted Tzatziki sauce, crunched fresh apples and proved anyone can eat healthy at the Great New York State Fair.

Armed with appetites and an agenda, Falk nutrition students Rachel Johnson ‘15 and Mary Briggman ‘15 set out to dispel the myth that it’s impossible to eat healthy at the Fair. Did the students pass up the Fried Chicken Fingers, Heart-Attack Burgers, and Apple Fritters for Fruits and Veggies? You just might be surprised.
