Kent State Connects Blog: National Blood Donor Month, and a Weight-Loss Challenge Update

Posted Jan. 28, 2013

On the Kent State Connects employee blog, Scott Dotterer, health promotion coordinator for University Health Services, writes about National Blood Donor Month and why it is important to donate blood.

“I can certainly appreciate the importance of donating blood, especially with the realization that there is no substitute for it. That being said, I think it would be great if more people would consider donating, if eligible, so that others can benefit from this life-saving gift.”

Emily Myers, special assistant in the Office of the Provost, provides an update on the unique weight-loss challenge adopted by some Kent State employees to lose weight.

“Oh the agony – how difficult it is to peel off one pound! And it seems like a conspiracy – just when you want to eat healthy, all you see is your favorite “junk” food!  Who keeps bringing that stuff in anyway? We just finished clearing out the holiday treats and now there is Valentine’s chocolate everywhere.”
