If you have students who still need a Tier 2, steer them toward this one if the time works. It is a possibility that we could lose the SHAPe clinic if the classes don't offset funding costs.

Subject: AT 3693--Spring 2017

Dear colleagues,

I'm writing simply to again ask you to kindly recommend my spring semester Tier 2 Applied Science course, AT 3693: Musculoskeletal Movement in Performing Arts, to your students. The enrollment is currently lagging behind where I had hoped it would be. There are plenty of slots for any students who can take it. Here is the course description:
A study of the demands placed on the human body in dance, music, and theater from musculoskeletal perspectives that include kinesiology, biomechanics, and healthcare. Anatomy, kinesiology, and biomechanics will be utilized to identify movements and possible injury mechanisms in performing artists. Case studies will be used to highlight appropriate musculoskeletal training protocols for selected injury prevention and to illustrate the role of healthcare practitioners in preventing and caring for musculoskeletal injuries in performing artists.

The one unfortunate factor, I realize, is that the time (TTh, 1:30-2:50) may conflict with a few other offerings your students may need or want to take. I'll consider moving it for next year, but at the moment it's in the same slot as last year to accommodate a particular group of students who expressed the desire to take it.

With the current tenuous funding situation of the SHAPe Clinic, I'm hoping to show the administration in my building that we have support from outside our college to offset the funding for SHAPe. Between you and me, continued funding for SHAPe from within the university is far from guaranteed.

Many thanks, as always, for your continued encouragement and earnest support,
