We are partnering with HR to throw a kick-off party and will have ice cream treats for faculty and staff. Come join us and learn about how you can help create a safe space where faculty, staff, and students can feel supported and socially connected, and to promote mental health as a key element in the academic success of our students.

Rev Up Your Metabolism!

You've probably heard people blame their weight on a slow metabolism, but what does that mean? Is metabolism really the culprit? And if so, is it possible to rev up your metabolism to burn more calories?

The presenter of this informative workshop will explore factors that influence metabolism and therefore affect long-term weight management. Participants will learn how to assess their individual energy balance, eating habits and other lifestyle factors and build a practical strategy for maintaining a healthy body.

With the holidays right around the corner, you can’t afford to miss this great workshop!

Agenda Topics:

  • Definition of Metabolic Rate
  • Can We Control Our Caloric Burn?
  • The Role of Exercise
  • Stress and Weight Control
  • Eating Habits – The Bad and the Good
  • Wrap-up
