Welcome to the Healthy Living Initiative Resource Page
The timeless dictum "Physician, heal thyself" is being taken to heart as Himmelfarb Library continues with the Healthy Living @ Himmelfarb initiative. The Healthy Living @ Himmelfarb focuses on nutrition, exercise, and stress reduction in support of healthy living for SMHS, SPHHS, and SON students.
The Healthy Living @ Himmelfarb initiative sponsors multiple events each semester. You can keep up with events on Himmelfarb Library social media pages which include our blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram sites.
