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

Perhaps you’ve seen the Public Safety Satellite Office located in the lobby area of the Campus Center next to the Information Desk.  Near completion, the office will open later this semester.  

We need your help!  All it takes is a moment to provide your feedback on which four-hour blocks of time you believe will be the ideal operating times for staffing the satellite office. Please click here to vote!  

The hours contained in the survey are based on suggestions received last semester by the Student Engagement Work Group for Advancing Public Safety Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement Goals.

Public Safety will announce the grand opening once the space is complete and staffing plans are finalized based on your input.

All bicycles on campus must be registered. Bicycle registration is free.  Individual bicycles only need to be registered once.  Registration helps the Office of Public Safety and Emergency Management to identify owners of lost, stolen or impounded bicycles and to disseminate safety information. Bicycle registration also allows Ithaca College to plan more accurately for improved bicycle parking and bicycle safety. If you see a bike you believe to be abandoned and/or is causing a safety hazard please contact our office at 274-3756. To register your bicycle, please go to http://www.ithaca.edu/sacl/safety/BikeRegistration/.

You worked hard to plan your event and create promotional materials to advertise it around campus. Then you post it here to Intercom, where it can quickly get buried by so many other posts, might go unnoticed in the thrice-weekly roundups, and can be difficult to find again should someone forget the event details.

Dear Ithaca College Students, Faculty, and Staff:

As a member of our IC community, you probably spend more time on campus than you do anywhere else. How can we make your time at IC better, more welcoming, and more meaningful?
