Celebrating all day every day because our Hispanic and Latinx students, faculty, and staff are extremely valued, and an integral part of our program!
--
Every year from September 15 to October 15, Americans celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month by appreciating the community’s history, heritage, and contributions of the ancestors of American citizens who came from Mexico, Spain, the Caribbean, and South- and Central America.

Hispanic Americans have been integral to the prosperity of the U.S. Their contributions to the nation are immeasurable, and they embody the best of American values. The Hispanic-American community has left an indelible mark on the U.S. culture and economy.

How will you celebrate this month?!

Happy #MuscleMonday! 💪

More fun facts: you can maximize increases in contractile proteins and volume of sarcoplasmic fluid by training with high volumes (3+ sets and 8-15 reps) and at moderate intensities (weight that causes fatigue by the 12th rep)

Let's get those gains in #HPSFam! 😎

#WellnessWednesday is all about more moving and less sitting!

Thermogenesis is the process of heat production in organisms, and Dr. James Levine found that people who stand and walk more throughout the day burn more calories than their counterparts!

You can do this many ways: stand rather than sit at your desk, take little walks throughout the day, etc.

So let's move more #HPSFam!

Happy National Yoga Month! 🧘‍♂️ Today's #WellnessWednesday brings you some yoga benefits and some fun facts.

Many yoga experts believe each person has seven major energy centers called chakras and 42 lesser ones that help to balance the body. The first begins at its base of the spine moving up to the seventh at the top of the head.

Different yoga types and positions focus on different chakras. A color, body system, gland, and nerves are associated with each chakra.

Great research on the Delta Variant, please read:

Vaccines are effective against the Delta variant, but transmission risk remains elevated among unvaccinated persons in schools.

During May 23–June 12, 2021, 26 laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases occurred among Marin County, California, elementary school students and their contacts following exposure to an unvaccinated infected teacher. The attack rate in one affected classroom was 50%; risk correlated with seating proximity to the teacher.
