National Public Health Week
This week is national public health week, and to celebrate, the School of Public Health is hosting a film festival. I haven't been yet, but I am helping out Thursday evening, when the topic is Immigrant Health. Sounds good to me. Also, this Friday the film topic is something along the lines of sexual health, and afterwards some students incluidng myself from the SPH are going out to some local bars for 'Lei for Life' to sell leis to raise money for our Relay for Life team.
Also, I just got accepted for a 10 hour/week position working with the Team COOL project at the University. I volunteered last fall with the project when we took heights and weights from students at alternative high schools in the area, as well as distributing surveys and activity monitors to them. The project aims to increase physical activity and healthy eating behaviors and monitoring the progress by taking pre and post measurements through the above measures. I think having a paid position will allow me to be more involved with the project, more than just recording heights and weights, and know more of what goes into organizing and implementing a project like this. Lots of hard work I'm sure.
I'm also looking forward to this Sunday, which is Easter. A group of friends is going over to another friend's house to celebrate with some great food. I hope the weather holds up, I kinda want to bike there- to the 'burbs.
