Current News at SUNY Orange http://www.sunyorange.edu/wea/grapevine/campus Current News for Tuesday, July 22, 2014 Tue, 22 Jul 2014 04:00:00 +0000 SUNY Orange Receives Grant Award to Enhance Wellness Efforts The Orange County Dept. of Health awarded the College a Healthy Orange grant to help increase understanding about chronic diseases and their prevention, and encourage physical activity among College students, faculty and staff.

In light of the recent movement to stop the sale of soda and other soft drinks, SUNY Orange food services will purchase two juicers as an alternative option for students. With freshly squeezed juices, the College will be able to offer healthy drinks with beet, carrot, celery, apple and lime, as an alternative to soda.

The two-pronged action plan includes signage and other messaging to encourage students to improve their personal diets. TV monitors, placed in prominent campus locations, will show health-related information displays designed to attract the attention of tech-minded students, faculty and staff; and workshops will be announced via the College Grapevine.

SUNY Orange will also address health consciousness by launching a SUNY Orange Wellness Center intervention to foster sustainable and meaningful lifestyle change leading toward greater community health and better understanding of what good nutrition is. Programs to be provided will cover a variety of health-related topics such as diet, obesity, stress reduction, exercise and tobacco use and other harmful behaviors.

Watch the Grapevine for further details.
