February 7th is national “Wear Red Day” and Human Sciences students, faculty and staff gathered on their front lawn to help raise awareness for American Heart Month. Heart disease is still the number one killer in the United States and research shows that strong social support makes getting regular physical activity, eating healthier, reaching and maintaining a healthy weight, and quitting smoking easier. Share this with your friends and family this month and help support a healthier future.
“Human Sciences professors and students do cutting edge research to explore mechanisms of diseases affecting the heart, lungs and blood and to find ways to promote healthy living and treat these diseases through nutrition, food safety, exercise, and mental health and behavior counseling interventions.” – Lynn Panton PhD, NFES Professor
