About Dr. Wallace

Dr. Wallace is an Associate Professor of Exercise Science and current Exercise Science Program Director for the department.  Her primary focus of training and study is in the sub disciplinary area of cardiovascular exercise physiology.  She serves as Director of the Cardiovascular Exercise Physiology Laboratory, on the Advisory Board for the Graduate Certificate in Gerontology, and as the faculty advisor for the SIU Women’s Volleyball Sport Club.

Dr. Wallace’s primary teaching responsibilities include KIN 420: Advanced Exercise Physiology, KIN 428: Physical Dimensions of Aging, and KIN 500: Research Methods in Physical Activity. 

Dr. Wallace’s research interests are in the area of cardiovascular physiology, and more specifically the relationship between aging, fitness level and mechanisms of blood pressure regulation. In studying these areas, the interaction between fitness level, aging, and antihypertensive medications can aid in the treatment of hypertension.  Hypertension is a leading cause of heart disease in this country.

Dr. Wallace is currently President Elect of the Midwest American College of Sports Medicine (MWACSM).  She has served on Board of Directors for MWACSM. Dr. Wallace has been a member of the national American College of Sports Medicine since 2001 and achieved Fellowship status in 2007.  She has also served on the ACSM Education Committee
