Dr. Timothy Harlan, also known as Dr. Gourmet, presented a three week nutrition lecture series on the downtown campus from March 24- April 7. It was a great lecture series with new and interesting information on nutrition. Forty-four Tulane faculty and staff attended all three sessions and earned $25* in the Streetcar to Better Health campaign. Look for the Healthy Diet Stop with Dr. Harlan at TNPRC June 3, 10 and 17 and uptown during the fall semester.

This month is National Osteoporosis Month and what better way to celebrate than to learn how you and your family can get strong bones! Here are a few things you need to know if you want to have strong bones:
CALCIUM & VITAMIN D ARE NECESSITIES
Calcium, which can be found in milk, almonds or broccoli, is important for the formation of strong bones, especially in children. Vitamin D, which can be found in the sun, tuna or egg yolks, is also essential for healthy bones because it absorbs the calcium.
Exercise, especially strength training, helps strengthen bones and muscles.
Smoking increases bone loss and makes you an obvious candidate for osteoporosis. Quit!
AVOID EXCESS ALCOHOL
If you drink more than two alcohol drinks a day, this may decrease bone formation and prohibit your body from absorbing calcium.
