The next No Pressure Blood Pressure will be held on Wednesday, October 30th.  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

This past week, Ithaca College launched a brand-new alumni website that will serve as a single hub for alumni information, benefits, and services. Whether alumni want to find an old classmate, network with those in their industry, submit an alumni note, make a gift, find out about upcoming events, or read the latest alumni news, IC alumni can do it all at alumni.ithaca.edu.

The best part is that the new website uses IC's existing Netpass system, so faculty and staff who are also IC alumni will be able to use their current IC username and password to log into the site. In other words, faculty and staff who are also Ithaca College alumni do not need to activate a separate alumni account.
