Throughout the semester, the Exercise Science program engaged in a comprehensive health project as part of the EXSC 431 Wellness Programming and Administration course. Collaborating with Busch LLC, Prime Plus Senior Recreation Center, and the City of Chesapeake, the class provided ongoing health assessments, including blood pressure and body composition evaluations. In addition, fall prevention screenings were provided to seniors at the Prime Plus Senior Recreation Center.
As a culmination of their efforts, the class successfully screened and educated 45 seniors, over 40 employees at Prime Plus, and more than 30 employees from the City of Chesapeake.
The collaboration between Exercise Science program students and the partnering organizations proved to be a valuable and enriching experience. Over the course of the semester, more than 50 students gained practical, hands-on experience, contributing to the success of this service-oriented project. The program looks forward to future opportunities to continue making a meaningful impact on the health and well-being of the community.
