Important note from Adele at HMP3 and Health Beat:


So sorry!  I fatally crashed the old system from overuse and it cannot be used again!  Here’s what will happen from now on: 


·         We will create a Health Beat listserv to take its place.  More about that to come.


·         You will need to check the Health Beat Events Calendar from now on to access details about upcoming HMP3, Health Beat and other student org events. 


·         We will send out a mechanism shortly for getting your own student org events added to the calendar. 


·         I will be sending out timely announcements through the new listserv that will highlight Health Beat and HMP3 events, as well as provide the helpful information that has made the HMP3 Weekly Email so popular over the years. 


It is the end of an era—but with great new possibilities on the horizon!
