Upcoming Events

GW Healthy Living at Himmelfarb

As students settle into the demands of the semester, exercise and healthy eating can often slip to the bottom of the list of daily priorities. Himmelfarb staff members want to help keep it in focus with a Healthy Living campaign. The Library will sponsor events and offer Healthy Living kits to support stress reduction, physical fitness, and nutrition and diet.
