 67 million people have high blood pressure in America

 What we already knew:

  • Risk of CVD (Cardio Vascular Disease) doubles for each incremental increase in SBP of 20 mmHg or DBP of 10 mmHg.
  • Aerobic exercise training leads to reduction in resting BP of 5-7 mmHg in those with hypertension.

New studies show:

  • Using salt substitutes can decrease blood pressure
  • 80% of sodium Americans intake comes from packaged, processed and restaurant foods.
  • Home cooking is a great way to control your sodium intake
  • Exercise can slow down the inevitable increase in blood pressure as you age.
  • Those who have proper protein intake are 40% less likely to develop high blood pressure
  • A combination of a high protein and high fiber intake can even lower the risk for hypertension
  • Consuming flaxseed daily may help reduce high blood pressure

Difference isn’t the problem. Discourse is! CMST assistant professor Christopher House will offer "CLTC 10000:01 Introduction to Culture and Communication as an online course during May Session 2016 (May 16- May 27).

In this course, students explore and interrogate the ways that communication (e.g., language, media, and discourse) establishes and enacts identity power dynamics. In thinking about communication as global citizens, our online discussions of, for example, movies like Crash (Paul Haggis, 2004) and Snowpiercer (Joon-ho bong, 2013) help us to understand how social identities are constructed, institutionalized, changed, contested and/or appropriated by various social groups.

This course fulfills Liberal Arts general education and ICC Diversity requirements.
