It’s a great chance to explore the fast growing field of integrative medicine and learn about the links between nutrition and health.  Doctors that will be speaking at the conference include Andrew Weil, Fredi Kronenburg, Dr. Victoria Maizes, and many more.  These doctors do not speak at many conferences; it is a great chance to learn from the leaders in integrative medicine. Almost forgetting the best part, this is a nutrition conference.  Nutrition Conference means great food! You will get to sample a multitude of delicious and healthy meals.  All of these meals are based on healthy eating habits and anti-inflammatorycontent.  In other words, the food is not only good but good for you! If any of your club members are interested in attending this amazing conference, the link to the conference website can be found below. See attached NHC brochure. 2.

Huskies on the Hill Lobby Day ASUW Huskies on the Hill Lobby Day will be on Friday, February 15th. Click here: to register! On Friday, February 15th, hundreds of UW students will travel to Olympia to meet with legislators and advocate for the future of higher education in Washington State.  Students are facing higher tuition, cuts to financial aid, the elimination of programs, and bigger classes with fewer TAs. It is time for legislators to find new sources of revenue to increase state funding. Students deserve a seat at the table. We need to be active participants in the governance of our university. We deserve a high quality education at an affordable cost.  Students can make a difference! It is time to speak up for higher education and BARK against budget cuts. We need you, your roommate, your study partner, your best friend, and even your parents to join us. If higher education is not a priority for our legislators, we need to make it a priority.  Use your student voice and participate in Huskies on the Hill 2013. Sign up now! Fill out the survey to reserve your spot by February 8th!
