Quality of Life Expo looks to motivate community
February 24, 2014
The School of Social Sciences and Education and the Quality of Life Center at CSUB will host the 3rd Annual Quality of Life Activity Series and the community is invited to take part in all the activities. Geared toward encouraging a healthy mind and body, the series will include a two-part lecture on spiritual wellness and a 5k run.
The 5k run/walk will take place March 15th, at Riverwalk Park at 8:30 a.m. Day-of registration begins at 7 a.m. and the cost is $25. Preregistration by March 10th is $22. There will also be contests for “most green,” raffle prizes, and awards.
The first lecture in the series titled “Happiness for Sale: How Money Can Buy Happiness (and Why it Typically Does Not),” will be presented on March 6th at 6:30 p.m by Dr. Ryan Howell, Associate Professor of Psychology at San Francisco State University and a co-founder of BeyondThePurchase.org. Dr. Howell and his colleagues developed Beyond the Purchase to explore the well-being costs and benefits of different purchasing and money-management choices, examining the motivations behind consumer choices.
Dr. Jeff Moffit, Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Education and Kinesiology at CSUB, will lead the second lecture on April 8th at 6:30 p.m., titled “21st Century Wellness and the Tao of Grandmother.” Dr. Moffit specializes in exercise physiology and biomechanics and has competed in triathlons for more than 31 years and is a three-time Ironman triathlon finisher.
Both lectures will be held in the CSUB Student Union Multipurpose Room with free parking in Lot K. For more information, contact Tonya Nixon at 654-2187 or email@example.com.
