Dr. Daniel Howell
The Barefoot Professor
Dr. Howell is an Associate Professor of Biology at Liberty University where he teaches human anatomy & physiology. Prior to joining the faculty at Liberty, Daniel performed biomedical research at Duke University Medical Center and McGill University in Montreal. He obtained his Ph.D. in biochemistry from Virginia Tech in 1998.
Michael Sandler, former speed skater and professional level cyclist, suffered multiple injuries over the course of a lifetime, the last of which occurred just over 3 years ago. Weeks before a planned inline skating world record attempt across the country (LA to NYC) to raise awareness around ADD/ADHD, Michael experienced a life altering accident. Fortunately, Michael doesn’t believe in limitations. He’ll be the first to tell you he doesn’t believe in the word, “Can’t”. Slowly but surely, through a combination of determination, meditation, trust in the universe and the power of nature, Michael became a walking miracle.
