Sister Mariane Fahlman, OP, PhD

Promoting health and physical activity has long been Sister Mariane’s calling. As a professor and coordinator of health education at Wayne State University, she works with undergraduates who are learning how to teach health and physical education and with graduate students who are health professionals.

Her research interests include the effects of exercise on the elderly (funded by the National Institutes of Health) and nutrition research in the Detroit Public Schools (funded by grants from the Michigan Nutrition Network).

Sister Mariane’s honors include the Vern Seefeldt Lifetime Achievement Award; the Wayne State University President’s Award for Excellence in Teaching; and the Michigan Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance’s University Educator of the Year award.
