September 30: All You Need is Love, Right?!

SUB 168 Noon-1pm

Join us for this collaborative presentation offered by the MSU VOICE Center and the MSU Office for Health Advancement--an interactive discussion on relationships in today's society.  "All You Need is Love, Right?!" covers components of healthy and unhealthy relationships as demonstrated in popular culture and media clips.  Often times we focus on the unhealthy aspects of relationships without offering reference points for what healthy relationships might look like.  During our discussion, we will focus on the values that are important to us and examine how relationships modeled in popular media often contradict those values.

November 4: Health at Every Size

 SUB 168 Noon-1pm

This presentation and discussion on Health At Every Size (HAES) offered by Lynn Paul, MSU Extension’s Food and Nutrition Specialist,  will provide a new approach to weight and health based on the following HAES principles: 1) accepting and respecting the diversity of body shapes and sizes; 2) recognizing that health and well-being are multi-dimensional and that they include physical, social, spiritual, occupational, emotional, and intellectual aspects; 3) promoting all aspects of health and well-being for people of all sizes; 4) promoting eating in a manner which balances individual nutritional needs, hunger, satiety, appetite, and pleasure; and 5) promoting individually appropriate, enjoyable, life-enhancing physical activity, rather than exercise that is focused on a goal of weight loss. Strategies for integrating HAES into your personal approach to health and your enjoyment of the holidays will be provided.
