Healthy Monday is the day all health breaks loose

The Mondays CampaignsMeet Upstate's Donna Bacchi MD, MPH and Syracuse University's Thomas Dennison, PhD, two of the folks who were instrumental in bringing Healthy Monday to the Upstate campus. Their interview on Health Link on Air radio aired Sunday, Nov. 27 (and if you missed it, listen here.)

Both campuses have undertaken a marketing effort begun by SU alum Sid Lerner, to encourage people to live healthier lives. Free fruit is offered in the campus fitness centers on Mondays, and chefs are starting to advertise meatless alternatives on Mondays. Several other related initiatives are underway, too.

On this What's Up at Upstate blog, humorist Jeff Kramer's column appears on the first Monday of each month -- because a fun dose of humor is healthy, too. (Look for his next installment Monday, Dec. 5.)
