Kudos to Sam Foster, Systems and LAN Management: Nursing used a new software program for exams and needed a great deal of support from Sam in working through the challenges of loading this onto devices and making it all work. This is a great tool for nursing students to prepare for computer-based examinations and I’m deeply appreciative of all the work Sam has done to make this work at NMC for our students. His skill and expertise are invaluable.

  • Walking strengthens your heart and lungs and tones your muscles.
  • When walking, your feet land with less impact than in other sports. This reduces chances of muscle, bone, and joint injury
  • Regular walking improves your cholesterol levels and lowers your risk of heart disease. And it helps you control your blood sugar if you have diabetes.
  • Walking is a weight-bearing activity, which helps maintain bone density. This can help prevent osteoporosis.
  • Taking walks can help you relax and manage stress.
