BAck to School in August
August in Mississippi is when families get back to an in-school routine which brings about many extracurricular activities where time management comes into play. It is also time for fall sports and hunting seasons where injury prevention is a key aspect of maximizing enjoyment.
August is also National Immunization Month and the CDC has put together a great toolkit with helpful information and communication.
College Football teams are beginning pre-season camps in preparation for the 2017 season. You too can begin preparing for the season by ramping up your own health, fitness, and eating routine to help you maximize your fall. For some great resources to get started, check out the CDC Physical Activity Recommendations, the ACSM resources, and the Exercise is Medicine website.
Employers in Mississippi promote college sports and can plan and promote a "Colors Day" event which celebrates your favorite college football teams.
