Meet our Health Promotion Management Graduate Assistant

Tara Mireskandari

Health Promotion Management Graduate Assistant 2021-2022

M.S. Sport Management Graduate Candidate 2022


I am a Sports Management graduate student originally from Summit, New Jersey. For my undergraduate years, I attended Syracuse University for a year and a half then transferred to SMU, where I majored in Applied Physiology and Sports Management while serving as the student representative for the SM concentration. During my time at Syracuse, I interned for the AHL’s Syracuse Crunch. I worked in the game operations and promotions sector.

I am currently the Graduate Assistant for the Health Promotion Management Master’s Program here at SMU. My responsibilities include writing student spotlights that are posted on the MSHPM social media, creating graphics sent out to students, and helping plan the SMU Wellpower 5k. Being a GA has provided me the wonderful opportunity to be able to interact with fellow students and the amazing faculty/staff that keep this program running smoothly!
