The workshop “Lifelong Nutrition: Strategies for Healthy Living” educates participants on how to plan healthy goals, learn about macro-nutrients and how to effectively integrate these life strategies into their daily routine. The virtual event is slated 1-2 p.m. on Wednesday,
Feb. 3.

It’s known that walking has a number of benefits—maintaining a healthy weight, prevents or manages various conditions (heart disease, Type-2 Diabetes, high blood pressure), strengthens bones and improves mood. During this virtual challenge, participants will receive daily tips to stay on track, encouraged to share their results and tag Sports & Fitness on Instagram at #UHDsportsandfitness to be entered in a prize giveaway.
