Would you travel 8,000 miles to achieve your dreams? For ASU Online student Pat Doyle, his trek included traveling to Australia to discover how to fundamentally affect the overall health of his community.
The concept of the New American University is one of reimagining education and pursuing meaningful societal impact. This concept has redefined what Arizona State University students can achieve, a door that is open to those in the digitally enabled environment through ASU Online. For Doyle, ASU has enabled him to have access to ground-breaking courses and faculty leading the area of sports nutrition, an area he is passionate about.
Doyle is a student in Tucson, Arizona and is pursuing his Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences – Healthy Lifestyles and Fitness Science. Through his own personal and professional experience, he learned the vital importance of exercise and nutrition.
In his early 20’s, a friend motivated him to start working out and commit to his health. A few years later, he would transform his own lifestyle, lose over 50 pounds, co-own a smoothie shop, and also offer nutrition counseling and bootcamp classes.
Doyle says helping people lose weight and adopt healthier lifestyles was one of the most rewarding and memorable experiences he’d ever had.
