DPT Health and Wellness Event tomorrow

Not to be missed is tomorrow’s 3rd Annual LSUHSC Health & Wellness Event, hosted by the Department of Physical Therapy and the DPT Class of 2011.

Join them Friday, October 23rd in Seminar Room 4 on the third floor of the Medical Education Building (across from the cafeteria) for a number of health and wellness activities. I attended last year and discovered my flexibility range, BMI, and other health information, and got advice on posture exercises and how to lift a heavy box properly.

If you plan to attend there’s also a LSUHSC Health & Wellness Event 2009 Demographic Survey. See you tomorrow!
