Founded in 2004, the Morrison Bruce Center works to enhance the well-being of girls and women through the promotion of an active and healthy lifestyle. Led by Kinesiology faculty members Liz Edwards and Sarah Carson Sackett, women of all ages are eligible to participate in a range of fitness activities in non-competitive environments. For the central Shenandoah Valley region, access to a resource like Morrison Bruce is critical, as the Center seeks to combat and overcome the low participation rates, societal norms, and low level of opportunities for women to engage in wellness activities, which are amplified in rural areas.  Read our feature on the Morrison Bruce Center to learn about their programs and research activities.
