Simmons own Professor Teresa Fung recently published one of the first studies on soda consumption and the increased risk of hip fractures in postmenopausal women.

Read President Helen Drinan's latest Huffington Post Blog: Mo'ne Davis -- Four Success Tips For Girls From a Young Baseball Ace.
Excerpt:

What can I say about Mo'ne Davis, but wow! This 13-year-old girl has the entire country talking, as her pitching skills have helped to lead her Philadelphia Little League team to the Little League World Series. This month, she led her team to a 4-0 victory over Nashville becoming the first girl pitcher in Little League World Series history to earn a win through a two-hit shut out. Now, this young phenom is gracing the cover of the world's most well known sports magazine -- Sports Illustrated. It's the first time that any Little Leaguer -- boy or girl -- has been featured on the cover. Mo'ne is one of only 18 girls (out of nearly 9,000 total players) to have played in the Little League World Series since it began in 1947.

Mo'ne has accomplished so very much at the young age 13. So what can we learn from her steadfast competition and humble nature? A lot. Here is a list of four things that I believe girls can learn about leadership and success from this inspiring athlete. Read more.

Meet Jessica Onnembo, a Nursing major from the class of 2015. Jessica has been working at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Intensive Care, and she has also been on the Simmons College Tobacco Free Committee. We had the chance to ask her a few questions!
Where are you spending the summer? What are you doing?
This summer I'm spending a lot of time in the city gaining experience as a Nursing Assistant at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Intensive Care. In April, I attended the annual National Student Nurses' Association (NSNA) conference in Nashville, TN. In my spare time I've been visiting Cape Cod and enjoying the beautiful summer weather!
How did you get involved with the Tobacco Free Committee?
I first became involved in Tobacco Free Simmons when Dean Judy Beal sent an email asking to establish a committee to promote health awareness and represent the students in the School of Nursing and Health Sciences. At our first meeting she asked students if we were interested in helping her to continue an initiative to make Simmons a tobacco free campus that she had brainstormed and started to set in motion two years ago. Immediately, I wanted to be on the frontline and really help make this happen for Simmons. I wanted to put my passion for advocating health awareness as a future nurse to work. For the wellness of the environment where I learn and live as a student and for my peers and fellow members of the Simmons community, I wanted to take the lead in establishing a tobacco free campus.
