About the Conference

WSKW attracts leading professionals in the fields of kinesiology and wellness. It offers all participants the opportunity to learn about and present scholarship, while developing strong professional relationships in a personal atmosphere. Our host city of Reno, the “Biggest Little City in the World,” is known for its temperate climate, entertainment, and fine dining. Historically, the ethos for the WSKW conference has been represented by the phrase, “Where the conferee is the program and mentoring and networking are the foundation.” This philosophy has stood for over 50 years. A few additions have been added in recent years providing a variety of opportunities for conferees to engage with their peers.
