Welcome back to campus and to Spring 2014!
Remember, flu season continues through May so be aware of healthy prevention practices:
Fight the Flu/Conquer the Cold!
- Cough/sneeze etiquette
- Frequent hand-washing!
- Aim for 8 hours of sleep
- Snack on fruits/veggies often; lots of water
- Protect your skin- use moisturizer and lip balm
Still time to get a flu shot from local pharmacies, Target, Walmart, etc.
Remember spring showers bring May flowers!! These "May flowers" bring watery eyes, red noses, sore throats and sneezes. Allergy meds and allergy hygiene practices can help.
