Produce Series

Farm fresh produce now available on campus

Our university community now has convenient options around campus to buy fresh, locally-grown fruits and vegetables. Courtesy of MHealthy’s Eat Smarter Fresh Produce Series, affordable, farm fresh produce will be available on select dates at three university locations: University Hospital's Towsley Triangle, Wolverine Tower, and the North Campus Research Complex (NCRC).

Eat smarter by adding more fruits and vegetables to your life and support our campus commitment to offering sustainable, locally sourced foods. Shoppers are encouraged to bring a reusable bag for purchases. Cash payment accepted at all locations; some will also accept credit/debit cards.

The Fresh Produce Series continues at the University Hospital and Wolverine Tower through late October and at NCRC through late November. Get all dates, times and information.

This tracker will remain open until late summer when we begin preparing for the launch of Active U Autumn, set to begin in September. Access the summer tracker.

THREE TIPS TO MANAGE EMAIL STRESS Email Stress

There’s no denying that email has changed the way we communicate. Instead of mailing or faxing, we email documents and letters. When we need a question answered or want to set up a meeting, we’re more likely to email instead of picking up the phone or having a face-to-face conversation. But is this useful tool overused and stressing us out?

Yes, according to a pilot study by U-M’s Business & Finance Leadership Academy that showed many of us consider email stressful. In fact, 75 percent of survey respondents reported moderate to high levels of stress related to their e-mail, specifically email volume and response expectations.

To combat email stress and foster better communication and relationships, MHealthy Mental and Emotional Health offers the following help:
