It’s the time of year where everybody makes a list of what they’re thankful for, and we’re not afraid to do the same (we will also post a “Year in Review” blog next month. You’ve been warned).
Time has an article on why being thankful is good for your health*. So being a health sciences campus, we figured we’d walk the talk and share what we are thankful for.
Students in our health sciences programs held a health fair this week, offering free flu shots, cholesterol tests, health screenings and more.

Many independent pharmacies these days – especially those in rural areas – serve as more than just a pharmacy.
They double as businesses, with the owners taking on a dual role of providing health care to their patients and customers, while at the same time working to stay in business and employ people.
