Exercise expert Kenneth H. Cooper at BYU forum Sept. 28

Kenneth H. Cooper, known as the "father of aerobic exercise" and personal physician to President George W. Bush, will speak Tuesday, Sept. 28, at 11:05 a.m. in the Marriott Center to the Brigham Young University community in a campus forum.

Live broadcasts of the forum will be on KBYU-TV (Channel 11), BYU-Television, KBYU-FM (89.1), BYU-Radio, and byubroadcasting.org, as well as in the Joseph Smith Building auditorium and the Varsity Theater on campus.

Rebroadcasts will be Sunday, Oct. 10, on BYU-Radio at 6 a.m. and Sunday, Oct. 3 on KBYU-TV at 6 a.m., BYU-Television at 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. and KBYU-FM at 8 p.m.

Cooper leads the international physical fitness movement and is the founder and president of the Cooper Aerobics Center. He has sold more than 30 million copies of his 18 books, which are available in 41 languages including Braille.

Beginning with his first book, "Aerobics," Cooper worked to cause a paradigm shift throughout the medical world to advocate disease prevention rather than disease treatment.

In 1965, Cooper received his doctor of medicine degree from the University of Oklahoma, and in 1962, he received a master of public health degree from Harvard University.
