The greatest wealth is health

With Spring well underway, the UIS campus is so beautiful – it seems like everyone is outside. Spring is also is a great time to get more active and get a little more committed to being healthy. I'm wearing my pedometer and planning on making that 100 mile goal by mid-April! On our campus a great way to enhance your health will be to attend the UIS Health Awareness Fair just a couple days away on April 4th in the TRAC. The Health Fair is a great opportunity to take advantage of some free health screenings, and gather valuable information on health and wellness. The Diversity Center will also be kicking off their Bullying – Not at @UIS Campaign. I hear this is a major – and "picturesque" event on our campus and I hope I'll see lots of UIS students, faculty and staff there! By the way, the title of this blog post is a famous (and very true) quote by the ancient Roman poet, Virgil. (Health educators know weird stuff like this.)
