Abstract

The Department of Health and Sport Science has recently piloted a Nutrition, Fitness, and Injury Screening clinic to provide an experiential-learning opportunity for our student practitioners as well as important health-related data to the campus community. Within this program, clients are able to complete one or more of the following: nutritional consultations, health and skill related fitness testing, and injury screening. Faculty and students participated in the clinic as either part of a course, research group, or co-curricular club. In this presentation, we will provide an overview of the services we offered, the student projects that have been supported by our work thus far, and our vision for the future of a fee-for-testing model of interdisciplinary experiential learning that provides value to our community.
