The purpose of the bulletin board was to make students aware of certain steps they can take to prevent disease such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, stroke, and high blood pressure.

On the left side of the board there are health tips that help prevent disease. They include: Improve flexibility, drink more water, get 7-9 hours of sleep per night, don't smoke, eat diet high in calcium and fiber, protect your skin from sun, limit sugar and saturated fat in your diet.

These are just some examples of all different kinds of tips you may want to add to the board.
