March is National Nutrition Month!

Go Further With Food


March is National Nutrition Month®! This is a yearly nutrition-based education campaign organized by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND).  


This year's campaign focuses on encouraging everyone to “Go Further With Food.”

In the United States, we waste about 31 percent of all edible food. American households throw away almost 28 percent of fruits and vegetables. 


The goals of this program are to inspire us to make better food choices and save money while we reduce food waste—a WIN WIN situation!

And every single time, one thing made the difference: feeling like I belonged. Feeling validated. Feeling like my professors and the college staff actually wanted me there.

Skin Cancer Facts

Arizona has the highest rate of skin cancer in the country!

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer and has three main forms: basal cell, squamous and melanoma. Basal cell is the most common form, while melanoma is the most serious. Unfortunately, from 1970 through 2009 skin cancer cases have increased by 80% in women and 40% in men. Getting a sunburn doubles the risk of skin cancer with each 5 times burnt or more.

Sports Injury Prevention

It is the time of year that we love in the desert. The prospect of perfect weather opens the door for many activities. Unfortunately, the rewards of living in paradise bring about the potential for injury. Many activities that we have grown to love like hiking, running, swimming or being the weekend warrior on the slow pitch softball field pose a risk to our physical health. My favorite thought of sports injuries has always been, if you can prevent it, you don’t have to treat it.

Here are some simple ways that you can keep yourself on the field, court, mountain or in the pool.
