Since January is Thyroid Awareness Month, the DiSepio Institute for Rural Health and Wellness will present a 'lunch and learn' event on Thursday, January 31, from 12:00-12:30 p.m. presented by Cara Fox to be held in DiSepio, room 201. This event is free and open to the public.

Many people have never heard of this small, but important, gland until it is not functioning properly. Thyroid disease affects between 30 and 60 million people in the United States. Your thyroid's main role is to secrete hormones, which are responsible for controlling metabolism, body temperature, growth, and more.

Pre-registration is required by calling 814-472-2783 or emailing mkrimmel@francis.edu. Please feel free to bring your lunch to this session.
