Women's Health Happenings

FOOD DAY  - October 24, 2012

The IU National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health supports Food Day on October 24th. A recent study of overall health statistics conducted by the National Women's Law Center graded the United States an unsatisfactory grade for healthy eating and the IU National COE wants to change this. We challenge the IUSM community to take a step toward a healthier lifestyle by participating in Food Day October 24th. Celebrate relationships with a healthy meal by  hosting a lunch or dinner at work or home, have a healthy pitch in. Visit for to download a toolkit and recipe ideas and to register your event.
