SPC Downtown hosts 2nd Healthy Holiday Hangout

SPC Programs & Events

Welcome to the Downtown Campus! I’m Meeshalle Jackson, the President of the Environmental Consulting Society. This is our second annual Healthy Holiday Hangout and this year we decided to partner with Phi Theta Kappa and The Honors College.

The goal of this event was to change the paradigm of students who think the holiday’ mean unhealthy food choices. We hope to talk about things like deficiency, which means that our bodies are undernourished because we cannot get the nutrients we need from indigestible cooked food and the topic of toxemia, which is a term used to describe poisons that are stored in the body.

The committee asked Dr. Linda Rose to be our keynote during this time. I recently became interested in Dr. LJ’s program for Natural Wellness, and hoped to bring her to our campus one day. Getting to know her has been a wonderful experience with lots of valuable information about student health and wellness. Dr. Linda Joy Rose is a therapist, author, and natural wellness expert who does workshops and demonstrations with her program called Raw Fusion Living. She’s been featured on national television shows like NBC’s Daytime and is the healthy eating expert for I have also met, seen, and experienced her demonstrations in person. Needless to say, I was amazed.

Mr. Frank Jurkovic, the Student Life and Leadership Coordinator at our campus said: “All the students loved the presentation and had a blast trying all the various raw foods. They had so many questions for you and thanked us for bringing you to the campus.” Here is a link to her special college program, “15 Ways to Beat the Freshman 15” so that you can get an idea of the invaluable knowledge students would learn from this experience.
