HEART AND SOLES: UN Global Health Challenge 2023

Join “HEART & SOLES: UN Global Health Challenge 2023”. 

February is American Heart Month and the Public Health Unit in the Division of Healthcare and Management and Occupational Health (DHMOSH) invites you to improve your cardiovascular health by “stepping”.
