Monthly Health Talks (BBHT) at EH&S Training Facility
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.
Bring your lunch and learn helpful hints that will help ‘YOU’ to improve your health. NMSU Departments are welcome to send
groups (up to 40 persons) or request specific dates. You
can provide comments or request specific dates via the EH&S
suggestion page (click here).
