The next No Pressure Blood Pressure will be held on Wednesday, December 10th.
Important reasons not to miss the next screening:
1. 65 million Americans have hypertension (high blood pressure)
2. Many people don't even know their blood pressure is high because there are no symptoms in most cases
3. Hypertension can lead to heart disease, stroke, heart failure, and kidney disease
4. 66% of those IC employees measured at the last screening were pre-hypertensive (above ideal )
5. A 20 point increase in systolic blood pressure (top number) or a 10 point increase in diastolic blood pressure (bottom number) doubles the risk of heart disease.
6. Poor diet, inactivity, and being overweight can lead to an increase in blood pressure
7. If one does not adopt a healthy lifestyle, the hypertensive individual will need to take costly medication with potential side effects
8. Physical and emotional stress can elevate your blood pressure

Submitted on behalf of Gerald Hector, Vice President for Finance and Administration.
Here at Ithaca College we have embarked on a number of major projects and initiatives that seek to improve upon all aspects of the college's operations. The Division of Finance and Administration factors heavily in these changes. In an effort to ensure that the campus remains informed about the changes, we have created web sites, sent INTERCOM announcements, and also produced In The Loop summaries. Today we are sharing an inaugural annual report that captures all the major accomplishments the division had during the academic year 2013-2014 that highlights the much needed team work required from many campus constituents. We will continue to find creative ways of keeping the campus informed of the work that is taking place in the division, to ensure that everyone remains engaged in the critical work that is ahead, and more importantly how everyone can become more involved in accomplishing the college's shared initiatives.
