Study Shows Income and Education are Important Factors in Heart Disease Risk
Doctors who ignore the socioeconomic status of patients when evaluating their risk for heart disease are missing a crucial element that might result in inadequate treatment, according to a Medical Center study.
Simon School Partners with Management Leadership for Tomorrow
To further promote diversity among the student body, Simon School is partnering with Management Leadership for Tomorrow, a national nonprofit that develops African-American, Hispanic-American, and Native American young people for leadership positions in corporations, nonprofits, and entrepreneurial ventures where these minority groups are under-represented.
Go Green: Bring Your Lunch to Work
Bringing lunch from home is healthier, usually less expensive, and easier on the planet. Here are some ways your lunch can be as sustainable as possible.
• Bring your own silverware from home.
• Use reusable storage containers rather than one-time use plastic bags. Plastic bags take hundreds of years, if not more, to break down. Bringing just 2 bags per workday, will have you use enough plastic bags to cover the floor of your kitchen in one year.
• Use local foods. Just because you’re not driving to lunch doesn’t mean your lunch hasn’t been driven to you.
• Bring a refillable water bottle with you.
• Bring your lunch in the same reusable bag you shop with.
