The Department of Exercise and Health Sciences houses a 1,100 square foot Exercise Science Laboratory, located within the Center for Clinical Education and Research (CCER) on the third floor of the Science Center. Between our two facilities, EHS Exercise Science Laboratory and GoKids Boston, we are fully equipped with state of the art equipment for exercise physiology assessments. These spaces are heavily utilized heavily for teaching (EHS 160, EHS 300, EHS 370, EHS 380, EHS 390, EHS 400, EHS 470 and EHS 480) as well as student and faculty research projects.
