by David Pesci, Office of University Communications.

Professors and students from the University of Connecticut will share a free "Day of Health" for lawmakers and staff at the state Legislative Office Building (LOB) in Hartford on Tuesday, Feb. 13.

Provided by the schools of Allied Health Professions, Nursing and Pharmacy, the "Day of Health" will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It includes free blood pressure and cholesterol screenings in the concourse tunnel connecting the LOB with the Capitol building.

Dieticians from the School of Allied Health Professions have created a low fat, low cholesterol cake that will be presented to Gov. Rowland. There will also be several surprises and an appearance by the UConn Husky Dog.
