Dear Alumni,


The fall semester is off to a great start!
The Office of Institutional Advancement is busy finalizing the details for the College's 2nd Annual Health + Wellness Expo on Saturday, September 28. This year's event is being held in conjunction with Family Weekend so there is sure to be a lot of activity on campus. 


The day kicks off at 9 a.m. with the Mario Zeolla '97 5K Walk/Run. This event was a big hit last year and is a great way to honor Mario's memory and support the scholarship in his name.


At 11 a.m., ACPHS and MVP Health Care will offer a FREE CE Event (1 contact hour) in the Student Center, Lecture Hall 201. The program, entitled "How does your state of mind influence your health?", will be provided by ACPHS Assistant Professor Jacquelyn Canning, Pharm.D., BCPP.


The Expo runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and includes a medication take-back program, flu shot clinic, Zumba, yoga, blood drive, health screenings, and information from more than 40 health + wellness vendors.


We hope to see you there!
