Student project to lay groundwork for emergency evacuation assistance

Volunteering with the Active Aging and Health Management Program, which serves seniors living with chronic diseases, has given kinesiology students Charles Kahelin and Rob Ward a better appreciation of the wide spectrum of mobility issues people must cope with.

Ward, just finished his third year studies in movement science, says that for a university geared to accessibility, the project is important.

“It’s a lot of work,” he said. “You have to maintain it.”
