Talk on Sports Nutrition

The Distinguished Lecture Series in
  Sports Medicine at Hope College will examine sports
  nutrition on Tuesday, April 4, at 7 p.m. in the Maas Center.
          The public is invited.  Admission is free.
          The talk, "Sports Nutrition:  Fact and
  Fiction," will be presented by Dr. Robert Murray of the
  Gatorade Sports Institute.  Murray will review issues to
  consider when evaluating the claims made by the
  manufacturers of sports nutrition products.  He notes that
  while some products provide demonstrable benefits, others
  lack scientific backing in support of the promises of their
  advertising.
          The Distinguished Lecture Series in Sports
  Medicine is designed for health care professionals with an
  interest in physically active patients, and is intended for
  students, educators and clinicians alike.  It is co-
  sponsored by Holland Community Hospital, GNA Rehabilitation
  Professionals and the college.
