  • Monthly Health Talks (BBHT) at EH&S Training Facility (updated 8/29/06)


    The Brown Bag Health Talks (BBHT) (description) are monthly lunch time events at our Safety Training Facility in room 110 of Academic Research Unit C (map).  The talks are informal and are designed for anyone who wants to understand more about health issues.

    Dr. Joseph M. Berning, Director of the Exercise Physiology Laboratory, has tailored the talks to be interactive as a way to provide practical information on health issues that may affect you or your family.  Currently he has set one brown bag health talk for each month for the 2006 Spring and Fall Academic semesters.  The BBHTs are from 12:00 to 12:50, at Academic Research C, Safety Training Facility.
