Wellness Wednesdays: Your Healthy Heart
Simple Ways to Improve Cardiovascular Health
Interested in finding simple yet impactful ways to weave wellness into your professional and personal life? If so, please join faculty and staff colleagues for Wellness Wednesdays the first Wednesday of each month (September to June). Each session offers information, resources, and/or immersion into different wellness modalities that are supported at UMBC.
Despite the millions of dollars spent on research, education, and prevention, cardiovascular disease still remains the #1 killer in the US. And yet, this is a disease that is largely preventable by making simple lifestyle changes particularly with diet and exercise.
Join UHS and RAC Recreation staff in this combination Wellness Wednesday session where you will learn more about heart disease - including the risk factors, symptoms of heart attack, and prevention strategies – and spend the remainder of the session experiencing a quick, simple, circuit routine to maximize your cardiovascular health. Loose fitting clothing and tennis shoes recommended.
Space is limited and registration is required. Registration deadline is Friday, January 27th.
This is a qualifying event for WIN Rewards - Physical!
