JOSEPH) &ndash;&nbsp; A breastfeeding class for mothers and fathers will be presented on&nbsp;<span data-term="goog_2043550803" tabindex="0">Monday, September 14</span>, from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m., in the Frederick S. Upton Education Center at Lakeland Medical Center, St. Joseph, 1234 Napier Avenue.</p> <p> Lakeland Health&rsquo;s certified lactation consultant will discuss breastfeeding from delivery room to postpartum, the use of breast pumps, weaning, returning to work, and other topics.</p> <p> In addition to enhancing the bond between mother and child, studies have shown that breastfeeding offers many health benefits. For a new mother, breastfeeding leads to less postpartum blood loss, helps with postpartum weight loss, and lowers the risk of ovarian and breast cancer. For the baby, breast milk enhances cognitive development, helps to fight illnesses, and is more easily absorbed by the digestive system than formula.</p> <p> The cost for the breastfeeding class is $30, due at the time of registration.&nbsp;For more information or to register, call&nbsp;<a href="tel:%28269%29%20556-2808" target="_blank" value="+12695562808">(269) 556-2808</a>&nbsp;or&nbsp;<a href="tel:%28866%29%20260-7544" target="_blank" value="+18662607544">(866) 260-7544</a>.Visit<a href="http://www.lakelandhealth.org/" target="_blank">www.lakelandhealth.org</a>&nbsp;or find Lakeland Health on Facebook or Twitter for more classes and events.</p> <p align="center"> # # #</p> <p align="center"> &nbsp;</p> <p align="center"> <strong>Free Program on Heart-Healthy Foods at Lakeland</strong></p> <p> (ST.

The sirens are within a 10-mile radius of the plant and would be activated by the Berrien County Emergency Management Department to alert the public to emergency situations. This could include severe weather, industrial or transportation chemical spills or activation of the Cook Nuclear Plant emergency plan.&nbsp;</p> <p class="p2"> Unlike the annual spring test where all sirens run simultaneously, this testing involves sounding each siren individually three to four times for about 30 seconds to obtain readings and make adjustments to ensure proper coverage and reliability. Annual preventive maintenance and battery checks will also be performed.&nbsp;</p> <p class="p2"> Testing will be suspended during severe weather conditions to avoid confusion with an actual emergency. In the event of an actual emergency, early warning sirens are all sounded continuously for three minutes.&nbsp;</p> <p class="p2"> Testing is expected to take place in various locations Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. during the three-week testing period. Testing will not take place on Labor Day, Monday, September 7.&nbsp;</p> <p class="p2"> The regular first Saturday of the month test at 1:00 p.m. where all sirens are simultaneously sounded for approximately one minute will take place on September 5.</p> Thu, 27 Aug 2015 17:58:10 +0000 Cross Culture: Sermon Series http://www.andrews.edu/agenda/38378 Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:53:25 +0000 Week of Prayer http://www.andrews.edu/agenda/38376 <p> At the age of eighteen Ty Gibson encountered the truth of God&rsquo;s existence for the first time. After having been raised with a purely secular worldview and having witnessed evil and suffering firsthand, Ty was completely opposed to the idea of a Supreme Being. &ldquo;If God exists,&rdquo; he reasoned, &ldquo;He would have to be cruel to have made a world like ours.&rdquo; Ty&rsquo;s conversion as a teenager was founded on the answer to that question. The powerful reality of God&rsquo;s love opened Ty&rsquo;s mind to a whole new line of thought. Since then he has given his life to the joyous task of sharing God&rsquo;s good character in public seminars as well as through print and video media.</p> Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:38:27 +0000 PMC Family Vespers http://www.andrews.edu/agenda/38374 Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:03:26 +0000 Faculty Book Club Fall 2015 http://www.andrews.edu/agenda/38369 <p> The Office of Human Resources and the Department of Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum are excited to provide an opportunityto challenge faculty members to reflect on their current teaching practices and to discuss ways to foster active learning, increase engagement, and improve student achievement.</p> <p> Please join us this semester for Faculty Book Club as we will be reading <em>What the Best College Teachers Do</em>, by Ken Bain.&nbsp; Come and be inspired to grow professionally as we dialogue with colleagues about the book and our lived experiences in higher education. &nbsp;Below are the dates the Faculty Book Club will meet to discuss and process various chapters of the book, and please note that discussion groups will begin at 11:45am, 12:00pm, and 12:15pm to accommodate varying schedules:</p> <p> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Thursday, September 10, 2015 (Chapters 1-3)</p> <p> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Thursday, October 8, 2015 (Chapters 4-5)</p> <p> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Thursday, November 5, 2015 (Chapters 6-Epilogue)</p> <p> To<strong> RSVP</strong>, please send an email to <a href="mailto:training@andrews.edu">training@andrews.edu</a>, and provide your<strong> full name, ID#, email address, and the department</strong> in which you teach.&nbsp; The first 25 faculty members to RSVP will receive a complimentary copy of the book. &nbsp;Also, please know that lunch will be provided.</p> Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:56:49 +0000 Computer Literacy Training Workshops http://www.andrews.edu/agenda/38367 <p> This semester, the School of Business Administration, in collaboration with the Office of Human Resources, is providing an opportunity for <u>Staff and Faculty</u> to participate in Computer Literacy Training workshops on Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Outlook, and Microsoft Word.</p> <p> The following workshops will be offered during the Fall semester, on Wednesdays, from 10:30am-12:20pm, in Chan Shun Hall 226 (PC Lab), beginning on September 16, 2015, and ending on November 4, 2015.&nbsp; Dates and specific topics are listed below:</p> <ul> <li> Microsoft PowerPoint (9/16/2015)</li> <li> Microsoft Outlook Beginning (9/23/2015)</li> <li> Microsoft Word Introduction (9/30/2015)</li> <li> Microsoft Word Intermediate (10/7/2015)</li> <li> Microsoft Word Advanced (10/14/2015)</li> <li> Microsoft Excel Introduction Part 1 (10/21/2015)</li> <li> Microsoft Excel Introduction Part 2 (10/28/2015)</li> <li> Fundamentals of Databases: An Intro to using Microsoft Access (11/4/2015)</li> </ul> <p> <strong>RSVP at training@andrews.edu and specify</strong> <strong>which workshops you would like to attend</strong>:&nbsp; Microsoft PowerPoint (1 session), Microsoft Outlook (1 session), Microsoft Word (3 sessions), Microsoft Excel (2 sessions), and or Intro to Microsoft Access (1 session).&nbsp; When sending an RSVP, we will need your <strong>full name, ID#, email address, and the department</strong> you work in.&nbsp; Seats are limited to 25.</p> Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:51:22 +0000
