On March 22nd, Ithaca College held its first TEDx talk.  It featured an array of speakers and Mary Bowers from the Class of 2013 was one of them.  The title of her inspirational talk was, "Rethinking the Student Body," which summarized in TED talk style the incredible 18 month long research she conducted for her anthropology major on the experiences of students with disabilities at Ithaca College.  She (re)defines "disability" as "uncelebrated human variation" and moves us to (re)consider normality and disability as myth.  She received a standing ovation on Saturday. May her work and talk continue to move us reconsider our student body here at Ithaca College.

The next No Pressure Blood Pressure will be held on Wednesday, March 26th. 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
