Twelve health-conscious ladies from the Law School staff traveled up to the Chester campus to lend their support and walk the mile and a half circuit around campus. Widener physical therapy students worked in conjunction with the Wellness Center, checking the heart rate and blood pressure of participants before and after the walk as well as providing water and fruit to those who walked. The Healthy Heart walk served as a fitting launch event for a yearlong campaign that will include healthy heart seminars and activities.
