Welcome Back and What’s to come in January

Good evening students, staff and faculty. We are excited to continue to get this semester moving! We are especially eager to share with you everything we have planned for January and the rest of the semester. There are so many different things occurring this month and so many more things to be aware of.

  • Cervical Health Awareness Month
  • National Birth Defects Prevention Month
  • National Glaucoma Awareness Month
  • National Radon Action Month
  • National Stalking Awareness Month
  • Thyroid Awareness Month
  • National Winter Sports TBI Awareness Month
  • National Folic Acid Awareness Week (first full week of January)
  • National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week (last week of January

These are some of the many causes to be aware of during this first month of 2017, and we are going to highlight a few of them each week for the rest of January. This week we are highlighting Cervical Awareness Month. You can expect facts every day this week and another post this Wednesday the 11th with more information on Cervical Cancer.

During the week of January 16th-20th we are highlighting National Birth Defects Awareness Month, and during January 23rd-27th we will highlight National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week.

We are hoping to share some healthy habits involving diet and exercise one day each week this semester, and we would love to share your healthy habits and activities on our Facebook and Twitter page. Post pictures of you exercising, your healthy meals or any other healthy activities and tag Harding University College of Pharmacy on Facebook or @HUPharmacy on Twitter using the hashtag #healthyatHUCOP and we will share and retweet your posts

We will continue to share facts on Influenza and the importance of being vaccinated through the winter and flu season. We will also continue to share facts and information on the Zika virus and the news and health-related tips on preventing or contracting it.

We also want to cover any events or important meetings HUCOP is hosting. If you are holding or helping with a health-related drive or event, please let us know by sending an e-mail to kstevenson1@harding.edu. You can also send any photos you have from your drive or event to this e-mail so we can share that on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Of course, we will always share any news in the health world or any sort of interesting health-related fact or article. We don’t want to be too serious, but we also want to keep you up to date.

HUCOP doesn’t want to miss anything going on in our community, Harding’s community and Searcy’s community. Please feel free to contact us with any information on health or pharmacy related events or share your photos from these events with the e-mail listed above.

Please continue to follow us on our Facebook page and Twitter page.
