The next No Pressure Blood Pressure will be held on Friday, February 14th. 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

Jennifer Tennant, Economics Department, published in the IZA Journal of Labor Policy with Howard Chernick and Cordelia Reimers, "Tax Structure and Revenue Instability: The Great Recession and the States."

 

Contributed on behalf of Gerald Hector, Vice President for Finance and Administration.

I have been asked by a number of people how we will fill the position of Associate Vice President for Information Technology Services following the recent retirement of Ed Fuller.  Per our usual policy, we will conduct a national search for this position, assisted by a nationally recognized search firm (to be identified).  The search is expected to continue through the summer of 2014 with the goal of having a candidate selected by August of 2014.  Dean Karl Paulnack has agreed to chair the campus search committee, and the remainder of the committee will be selected from members of the faculty and staff in the near future.  The leadership team within ITS will report directly to me until the new AVP is in place.
