Older Adult Fitness Program
UWM's Department of Kinesiology is pleased to announce a partnership with the Milwaukee County Department on Aging (MCDA). Together we are developing, implementing, and evaluating a wellness program designed to enhance the health and quality of life of older adults in Milwaukee County. Undergraduate and graduate students are provided with opportunities to complete field experience coursework, internships, and research at several of the County's nine senior centers. These opportunities are particularly exciting as they provide our students with hands-on experience working with older adults from culturally diverse backgrounds. In addition, Kinesiology's faculty and staff have opportunities to conduct research on the biopsychosocial outcomes experienced by older adults involved in exercise and fitness programming.
