Acadia professor awarded $1.1M to establish lab for health, inclusive movement

Acadia University School of Kinesiology Assistant Professor Emily Bremer has been awarded $1.1M to establish the Inclusive Movement and Health Lab at Acadia. The lab will contain specialized equipment, spaces to assess movement skills, and areas for physical activity programs for children with disabilities. “There will also be a space for cognitive and behavioural assessments as well as a nice space for honours and graduate students to work and collaborate,” said Bremer. “Having that space and equipment opens a lot of doors for the students for training and the breadth of research they can do.” Project funders include the Canada Foundation for Innovation and Research Nova Scotia.
