February 1, 2011: Belhaven University is pleased to continue the Health & Wellness Series with “Eating Healthy for Exercise and Sports” lecture. Keynote speaker Dr. Russell Blaylock, a Neurosurgeon and Clinical Nutritionist, and Ms. Rebecca Tuner, a registered dietician and sports nutritionist, are both discussing how to eat correctly for exercise and sport. The event is Tuesday, February 15, 2011, from 5:30-7:30 pm in Barber Auditorium.

The BU Health & Wellness Series events, which are free and open to the public, contains two key elements. First, are two designated walking trails of either 1 or 1/2 mile in length. Both trails lead walkers through the beautiful Belhaven campus and offer a safe and scenic way to walk your way towards a healthier life. The second component is the unique, educational, and hands-on programs that have been developed to help participants improve their health IQ. Designed to inform you about the fundamentals of a healthy lifestyle, the educational programs are led by experts in a variety of fields and will be enhanced through interaction with Belhaven University Sports Medicine and Exercise Science students and faculty.
