In recognition of Healthy Hearts Week, members of the Student Nurses’ Association volunteered to conduct lunchtime blood-pressure screenings outside the Keystone Dining Room on Wednesday. Among the week’s other activities is participation in a pledge, through which faculty/staff and students are committing to healthier lifestyles. Mallory L. Weymer, coordinator of student health and wellness education/suicide prevention specialist, said members of the Penn College community can take the Healthy Hearts pledge through Friday in the Bush Campus Center lobby.
