Announcement:  Brown Bag Health Topic "Healthy Heart Wednesday", Feb. 21, 2:00-6:00 pm

It is Valentine's Day and it started out a little cloudy, damp and chilly with occasional sleet and rain. The nice thing here, is that we don't have to dig out of the freezing snow like some parts of the US.   February is American Heart Month and the monthly BBHT event is promote and attend "Healthy Heart Wednesday" at the Student Wellness Center in the James Delamater Activity Center. 

On Wednesday, February 21st the Student Wellness Center, Student Health Center, and WAVE program will provide the 2nd annual “Healthy Heart Wednesday” at the SWC in the Activity Center ("the AC").  Participants will have the opportunity to receive free health screenings regarding body fat percentage, cholesterol, blood pressure, blood glucose, nutritional aspects, and eating disorders. Information will also be available on NMSU programs and opportunities for improving your fitness and personal wellness.  Mr. Shon Myer, Assistant Director Fitness/Wellness, Physical Ed Recreation and Dance, has provided the event description on the attached flyer.  Those interested should note the time (2:00 - 6:00 pm), location, and the requirements for certain services. 

The NMSU Community (employees, students, associates, your whole office or department) are welcome to participate and take part in activities that will help ‘YOU’ improve your health.  Medicines and medical technology can save and prolong life, but you hold the key to maintaining your health.  These Brown Bag Health Talks are an informal and interactive way to provide practical information on health issues that may affect you or your family.
