FYI Stories

IT Tech Fair

UD faculty and staff members are invited to attend the 2014 UD Tech Fair on Oct. 28 in the Trabant University Center to explore new technology.

Long-term care

UD's Office of Human Resources has announced a special open enrollment period for the Long-Term Care Insurance Program from Oct. 20 through Nov. 21.

The book looks at the ways that everyday things may be making people sick and shows how they can protect themselves by making wiser, healthier choices.

It examines the way products are made and regulated, the way synthetic chemicals enter bodies and the latest research about what this chemical “body burden” may be doing to people’s health. It looks at shopping habits, drinking water and lawn care, and ponders the ways advertising and marketing have blinded people to problems.

All Green Liaisons are encouraged to attend the presentation, which is also open to the general public. Drinks and light refreshments will be available.
