Samford Big Give 2018 Square

Through Samford’s Big Give, April 10-11, you can support Samford University’s School of Health Professions by making a gift to its SamFit Community Testing Program, a physical health, fitness and performance assessment service available to the community.

The program, directed by Department of Kinesiology faculty with student interns, incorporates state-of-the-art laboratory equipment with the latest knowledge and research in exercise science—providing students with invaluable hands-on experience.

Gifts to this project will support the expansion of this program and the opportunities it provides to students.
