Written by Jack Meltzer



Willimantic, CT- Nanette Tummers, health and physical education professor at Eastern Connecticut State University, will be honored by the Connecticut Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (CTAHERD) at its annual banquet on Nov. 19. The banquet will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Cromwell, CT.  Tickets for the event are $35.

 Tummers is being awarded the prestigious professional service award for her years of commitment to health education and fitness. Tummers came to Eastern in 2001 from the University of Miami, where she oversaw the health and wellness curriculum for third-year medical students for four years. She also taught personal nutrition at Miami University's School of Nursing and at Barry University in Florida. 

Tummers is widely published, and her articles focus on yoga, the connection between mind and body and fitness, and resistance training. Earlier this year, she published two books, "Teaching Yoga for Life: Preparing Children and Teens for Healthy, Balanced Living" and "Wellness and Stress Management."   She is also a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance and a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
