Spring 2011 Semi-Annual Report

  • Amended SHAC bylaws.

    • Used these results to create a calendar of health areas to focus on during the 2011/2012 school year. Each calendar month has been assigned one health topic (correlating with National events). This calendar was presented to the  Wellness Initiative and will be adopted by it’s members providing unified messaging across campus.
