A new PhD in Physical Education

Georges El Khoury has successfully defended his PhD dissertation titled “Influences des niveaux d’activité physique et de performance physique sur la densité minérale osseuse, la géométrie osseuse de la hanche et le score de l’os trabéculaire chez de jeunes hommes en surpoids et obèses”. This PhD dissertation was prepared under the provisions of the co-tutorship agreement between the University of Balamand and the University of Rennes 2. It was supervised by Dr. Rawad El Hage, from the University of Balamand, and Professor Hassane Zouhal, from the University of Rennes 2.

Some of the findings of this thesis were published in the “Journal of Clinical Densitometry” (Impact Factor: 2.64).

Dr. El Hage, Chairperson of the Physical Education Department, declared that he is very satisfied with the results of Dr. El Khoury’s research, and added that this work has many clinical implications in the field of osteoporosis prevention in overweight and obese men.
