Gardner-Webb University’s aspiring exercise physiologists and other allied health professionals will be among the first to benefit from a brand new laboratory designed to shift healthcare emphasis from disease management to preventive care. The vision for an advanced human performance lab is now a reality, due in part to the lead gift by Carolina Chiropractic Plus of Shelby, N.C. along with significant contributions from the Nanney Foundation and the McNair Educational Foundation. Officially named the “Carolina Chiropractic Plus Human Performance Lab” and located in Gardner-Webb’s Suttle Wellness Center, the 1,300 square-foot facility will serve as the main supplement to the undergraduate exercise science program and is directed by associate professor of exercise science Dr. Jeffrey Hartman, in the GWU School of Preventive and Rehabilitative Health Sciences.
