Health and Human Performance News and Events
This year the Health and Human Performance program at Seattle Pacific, in collaboration with the Seattle Pacific Alumni Association, would like to invite you to a special Alumni Open House in conjunction with the Senior Spring Colloquium Event, on Saturday, May 16, 2015. Join us for a tour of the newly renovated lab, reconnect with your former classmates, and visit with faculty; Dr. JoAnn Atwell-Scrivner, Dr. Dale Cannavan, and Dr. Jarrett Mentink. You’ll also hear from current students in the program, and actually experience our newest addition to the lab, the Biodex Isokinetic Dynamometer.
Seattle Pacific first added courses in physical education in 1914, recommending that “courses consist of classes in both theory and practice.” Courses in tennis and basketball for all students soon began. Watch this year for ways to celebrate with us SPU's 100 years of health and fitness.
