The College of Health prepares health care providers and human movement specialists, who improve the quality of life for the patients and individuals receiving care. Our mission “More Health, Less Medicine” is leading the complex shift in health care from primarily caring for the sick to keeping people healthy, fit, and resilient by developing and implementing innovative science and educating the next generation of practitioners and researchers.
