National Public Health Week
During the first full week of April every year communities across the United States observe the American Public Health Association's National Public Health Week which recognizes the contributions of public health and brings attention to the issues we still face today. Each year, Healthy Monday Syracuse coordinates a lunch lecture related to a relevant issue in public health. Many thanks to Lisa Thomas, Registered Dietitian with SU Health Services for speaking at our lunch and learn held on Monday, April 7th as part of a series of lectures for National Public Health Week. Lisa has shared her presentation with us on mindful eating.
Walk with Us
Walk with Us is a walking initiative sponsored by Healthy Monday Syracuse and Recreation Services that occurs during the month of April. After a long winter, it is great to get outdoors to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine while moving those muscles. Each week, we organize a Monday Mile walk with notable members of the SU and Syracuse community.
