Open House - April 15th, 2016


We will be hosting an open house for students who are interested in studying athletic training, exercise science, or related academic programs, which include kinesiology, exercise physiology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and nutrition. This will be a full day of fun, hands-on learning experience free for all high school students.  This is a great opportunity to explore the college learning environment, learn about laboratory equipment, exercise testing, and speak with university professors and students about the programs offered, specific areas of study, and future careers.

Please contact Marywood Human Physiology Lab with any questions.
