NEW! This Cardiovascular Wellness Newsletter is a free introductory copy for Renaissance members. It is part of a pilot Cardiovascular Wellness Program designed to prevent cardiovascular diseases, especially for those who have limited or no access to such services. The program is a joint venture of the College of Health and Human Services and the College of Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies at California State University, Sacramento (CSUS) and the University of California, Davis. An annual subscription for an electronic version of the quarterly newsletter would be $20, which will be a tax deductible donation to the Foundation for Health through Knowledge and Action.
