Kent State University’s College of Education, Health and Human Services announces the appointment of Vicki Haywood Doe, Ph.D., ACSM-HFS, as its 2014 Diversity Catalyst. Doe, a resident of Niles, Ohio, will work on behalf of the College of Education, Health and Human Services and its Office of Diversity Outreach and Development during the 2014-15 academic year on diversity and community outreach efforts, while also connecting with disciplines within the college that fit her line of work.

Doe, an alumna of Kent State’s Exercise Science/Physiology Program, is the president/CEO of Haywood Doe Consulting Co. LLC, where she designs, consults and implements lifestyle interventions for special populations. She also is a researcher with Summa Akron City Hospital, where she conducts research that focuses on the effect of exercise, depression and various hemodynamic responses among cardiac patients in cardiac rehab.

“When I think about the words 'diversity catalyst,' I envision someone who will be the connection between the university and the community. Someone who can create positive relationships between Kent State students and the community we live and work in. I plan to bring both groups the opportunity to learn about each other and create positive business and community relationships,” Doe says.
