2019 LionPulse Grant Funding

Thanks to funding from LionPulse, the Harrisburg Campus is able to provide assistance to their already-created Center for Fitness and Wellness (CFW), which is a health and fitness assessment and physical activity consultation clinic within the Department of Kinesiology. The CFW at Penn State Harrisburg is preparing to conduct fitness and health assessments and biometric screenings for aerobic capacity, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, body composition, heart health and a general Health Risk Assessment. Biometric screenings include assessments for total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, and triglycerides. Future screenings will include fasted blood glucose and A1c.

Additional campus wellness programs are listed below and in the Event Calendar.
