     HAMMOND -- Two Southeastern Louisiana University professors – Frederick Dembowski in the College of Education and Human Development and Robert Kraemer in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences – have been appointed to editorial positions with national publications.

     Dembowski, Hibernia professor and head of the Department of Educational Leadership and Technology, has been named managing editor of the NCPEA CONNEXIONS, an on-line database and electronic journal produced by the National Council of Professors of Educational Administration. Kraemer, professor and graduate coordinator in the Department of Kinesiology and Health Studies, has been appointed an associate editor of the journal Metabolism.

     NCPEA CONNEXIONS has been in operation for one year, building up a database of more than 200 modules, which contain a wide variety of information for education professors, including articles, case studies, class sessions, and course designs. The intent of the project is to make material available readily available to professors when designing educational leadership courses.

     Dembowski came to Southeastern in 2004 to assist in the development of the university’s first doctoral program, an educational doctorate in leadership that is conducted in consortium with the University of Louisiana-Lafayette. He previously was associate dean of education and professor at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla.

     Kraemer will serve on the editorial board of Metabolism, which is considered an eminent journal important to clinicians and researchers alike as an authoritative source of practical information on metabolic processes and diseases.

     A professor of exercise physiology who has been on the Southeastern faculty since 1991, Kraemer has performed extensive research on the effects of exercise on hormones that increase muscle and bone mass, reproductive hormones, and hormones that affect eating behavior and body fat. In 2005, he was awarded Southeastern’s President’s Award for Excellence in Research. Widely published in numerous scientific journals, he also serves on the editorial boards of the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, and European Journal of Applied Physiology.
