Are You In A Battle For Better Health? Introducing the latest offering from WELCOA—Culture Clash. Authored by Steve Aldana, PhD, Culture Clash cuts to the core of what is causing our poor health—our unhealthy culture. For a quality life devoid of excess weight, chronic disease and poor overall health, you don't have to turn to magic pills, quick fix potions or novelty diets. Those things only mask the real issue—our unhealthy culture. Culture Clash will unveil those masks and point you down the path to a healthy lifestyle.
The book club will meet one the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month at noon in the Tower lounge of Reed Library.
Free yoga classes will be offered to faculty/staff Fridays this fall from 12-1pm starting on September 5th, 2014. Wear comfortable clothing, bring your own mat and meet us in the Dods Hall gym.
