Nutrition Counseling & Education
September is National Cholesterol Education Month and Fruits and Veggies – More Matters Month. High cholesterol increases the risk for heart disease and stroke. If you know students who have high cholesterol or other nutrition-related concerns, please encourage them to make an appointment for free counseling with Michelle Singleton, our staff dietitian, by calling (765) 494-9355.
To help students meet the recommended daily number of servings of fruits and veggies, Michelle can meet in a dining court or restaurant for her “Dine with a Dietitian!” presentation. For more information, contact Michelle Singleton.
This month’s data sharing highlights impediments to academic success, as reported by undergraduate students in the 2013 Purdue Wellness Survey which was administered to all Purdue students in Spring 2013. The report is attached to the accompanying e-mail and notes that stress is the #1 impediment. Dr. Nancy Maylath, SWO’s director, is the survey’s principal investigator and can answer questions about the survey by phone (765) 494-9559 or e-mail.
This month’s featured collaboration partner is Esteban Hernandez, with Purdue Promise.
