Specifically, he was a member of the Association for the Advancement of Applied Sport Psychology (AAASP
) and participated on various panels at professional sport psychology conferences.
Since 1989, AAASP has offered any sport performance enhancement professional who meets specific criteria (education and training) the opportunity to become recognized as a "Certified Consultant, AAASP" (Zizzi, Zaichkowsky, & Perna, 2002).
With regard to certification and licensure, it would be beneficial to explore the degree of credibility athletes afford SPCs who are AAASP Certified or licensed psychologists.
(48.) Gorelick PB, Richardson D, Kelly M, et al, and African American Antiplatelet Stroke Prevention (AAASPS
Researchers at the conference called AAASPS historic and unique, citing not only the important finding but also the trial's demonstration that a large interventional study could be performed exclusively in African American stroke patients.
Nationwide, AAASPS recruited 1,809 adults who had experienced a noncardioembolic, ischemic stroke between 7 and 90 days before inclusion in the study.
But the two drugs performed differently in the real-life, high-risk population enrolled in AAASPS. At entry, 85% of the AAASPS subjects had hypertension, 42% had diabetes, 42% had hypercholesterolemia, 47% had a family history of stroke, 67% were current or past smokers, and 67% reported getting no leisure time exercise.
When the blinded portion of the African American Antiplatelet Stroke Prevention Study (AAASPS) was halted prematurely in mid-2002, there was no statistically significant difference between ticlopidine and aspirin when it came to the primary end point of preventing stroke, MI, or death.
