Community Engagement: Kids learning TRX

“Working with our D.C. Virgo Preparatory Academy students to apply health and fitness concepts to their experiences in the Learn to Swim program is one way we hope to encourage students to come to UNCW to study in the health sciences to keep our communities healthy and strong!”

Dr. Alexander McDaniel, Exercise Science
