Graduate Health and Exercise Sciences Society

Graduate Health & Exercise Sciences Society (GHESS) is a student-led group which strengthens the connection between students, faculty and staff. GHESS is a common platform to organize events, both social and academic. The aim of its activities is to enhance the academic and social environment of the School.


Due to COVID-19 all events have moved to a virtual space. Students will be updated as info becomes available

Lab Socials

GHESS is dedicated to building a dynamic research culture that promotes academic discussion between students and faculty members. The monthly Science Socials (Sept.-May) are designed as an opportunity for graduate students to describe the research focus of their lab in broad terms and to bring together members of the School on an informal basis.

Annual Graduate Student Research Day

Each year, GHESS hosts Graduate Student Research Day to showcase the research underway in the School of Health and Exercise Sciences. The annual event welcomes all graduate students, faculty, and staff. Graduate students are invited to attend or present.
