All Day From Root to Sky: Sachiko Akiyama (Multi-Day Event)
Click here to RSVP

Artist Talk and Reception: Wednesday, April 5, 5:00 P.M.
Exhibit on View: April 5–May 19
 
Sachiko Akiyama’s work brings together artistic influences of Brancusi, Egyptian funerary sculptures, medieval Christian woodcarvings, and contemporary sculptors with the artist’s personal experiences and Japanese heritage, notably Japanese fairy tales.  Her carvings convey a sense of centeredness and direct connections to nature that opens up the door to creation mythologies and other mystical possibilities. The figures’ relationships to flora, fauna, and the elements speak metaphorically to the ways we find meaning in our lives and meet the challenges of our surroundings.

Both blending and juicing your fruits and vegetables are hot diet trends for 2017. From the juice bar at your gym to the on-line smoothie deliverable club, there is a lot of choices out there. But is the hype to be believed?  Why is everyone drinking these and are the health claims true about these wonder concoctions? This seminar will cover why you should or should not be drinking smoothies, what combinations of fruits and veggies work best, what you should avoid putting in smoothies, how much you should pay for a smoothie on-the-go and so much more. Plus, there will be a few yummy concoctions to taste and recipes for you to try at home.  Step up to the smoothie bar and let’s have a conversation about health and wellness in a glass! Please join us in Nichols 170.

 

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM New Cancer Conversation-Virtual Presentation

Join the New Cancer Conversation!

Lots of conversations about cancer focus on risk factors, treatment options, and survival rates. That’s why 15-40 Connection is starting a New Cancer Conversation—one that focuses on what YOU can do about cancer, and empowering you with lifesaving knowledge that can help you detect cancer early.

We know that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives. But there's something you can do to help!

Early detection is our best tool to increase survival rates - join us for a virtual presentation featuring young adult cancer survivors who share their pre-diagnosis journey. Hear their experiences and lessons on how to recognize early warning signs, when to seek medical attention, and how to collaborate with your doctor to receive the best medical care.

Here is a link to register for the virtual presentation: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/new-cancer-conversation-virtual-presentation-tickets-31836904037

12:00 PM - 12:45 PM Wellness - Come as You Are Tai Chi
Tai Chi is a gentle exercise for body and mind.  With its roots in Chinese martial arts and traditional Chinese medicine, Tai Chi uses slow and gentle movements to build your balance, strength, flexibility and focus.  No matter your age or physical condition, you can practice Tai Chi.  Scientific studies support the effectiveness of Tai Chi in improving the lives of people with chronic conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes, and osteoporosis.  Most of all, Tai Chi is relaxing and fun.  So come as you are, in comfortable clothes, with flat-soled shoes.  You will learn the basic principles of Tai Chi as well as exercises and a short form you will be able to practice on your own.  The course will be taught by faculty member Carolyn Hotchkiss, who has studied Yang and Sun style Tai Chi for five years, and is certified to teach Tai Chi for Arthritis.
