Go Girls! and Guys! in the Community

Our community program is generally a 6-week program, meeting once per week, that takes place in a variety of places throughout the region.  In addition to 35-45 minutes of Zumba, we lead discussions each class on the following topics:

  • How to develop exercise habits: including types of exercise, developing a routine, exercising safely, staying motivated
  • Benefits of exercise: why exercise is good for us; what can happen if we don't get enough exercise
  • Healthy eating: including using My Plate as a guide
  • Introduction to basic and clinical research: how do we form and test scientific questions? what is basic science, clinical, and translational research?
  • Careers in science: if you study science, what type of work can you do; what are science careers, and how careers in science make a difference

In February 2021 the program will be offered in collaboration with Jefferson Madison Regional Library and Orange Parks & Recreation. Details can be found at the respective partner links.
