Virtual Reality was once the dream of science fiction, but so once were computers, the internet, and smartphones. Engaging, augmented reality is quickly becoming a part of daily life. However, there is still much to learn and discover, and a Limestone College professor and his students are peeling back the layers as they pave the way toward the future.

MyFirefighter Plan

Firefighters in the City of Gaffney are healthier these days, all because of a research project that started in Canada.

So how did a health-related study in The Great White North make its way down to the Palmetto State and into a fire station in Gaffney?

Nearly three years ago, Dr. Felicia Cavallini, a Professor of Physical Education at Limestone College, served for 11 months at the University of Guelph as a Visiting Research Chair in the Human Health and Nutritional Sciences Department, and her primary focus was on physical activity and exercise.
