Bunker Hill Community College is striking back – preemptively – against women’s cardiovascular disease. BHCC held a series of events on National Wear Red Day – Friday, February 6th – to raise awareness that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in women. Stickers with the red-dress motif – national symbol of this health campaign – were handed out to the entire College community, many of whom also sported red shirts, ties, jackets, and blouses as a sign of solidarity in the fight for women’s heart health.
BHCC culinary arts’ student Erik Powers won one of the most prestigious student awards in the world of haute cuisine: The S. Pellegrino Almost Famous Chef New England Competition. The other student competitors represented at the event came from some of the most renowned schools of culinary arts in the region, including: New England Culinary Institute, Johnson & Wales University and Cambridge School of Culinary Arts.
Gloria Steinem, renowned feminist, writer and lecturer will speak at Bunker Hill Community College on Tuesday, February 24th. Steinem will be this year’s second speaker in the College’s “Compelling Conversations” speaker series, which is free and open to the public.
