Plans for uniting the physical therapy program on South Hill are progressing on schedule, and I wanted to provide the campus community with an update on how that move will prompt some additional moves by other programs and operations.

As you may remember from our June announcement, we were able to take advantage of the renovation work already underway in Hill Center to include construction of the cadaver and movement analysis laboratories in that project. We are well into the construction design phase for those labs, which will be used not only by our physical therapy students and faculty, but also by other programs in the School of Health Sciences and Human Performance and elsewhere at the college.

As planned, students currently in the physical therapy program will remain in Rochester through the end of the summer of 2014, with the new facilities opening for the 2014–15 academic year.

Ithaca College recently completed an Effectiveness and Affordability review which identified a number of processes that were recommended for a more in depth review in an effort to identify potential gains in efficiency and application of industry best practices.  One such area that was identified is that of the College’s current purchasing processes.  In light of this information the College has decided to take a more in depth look at its current purchasing processes and compare them to current industry best practices and assess how strategic sourcing would benefit Ithaca College and what would be involved to move the College in that direction.

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
