Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a
healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.
-John F. Kennedy
The Department of Health Sciences' programs of teaching, research, internships, and advocacy of physical activity, both on and off campus, have as their focus the enhancement of quality of life through the development of all dimensions of wellness -- physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual. The department's commitment to encouraging the adoption of healthy lifestyle choices contributes to Furman's mission of educating the whole person.
