The Foundation for Mount Nittany Medical Center will hold its 62nd annual Charity Ball on Saturday, February 13, 2010, at the Nittany Lion Inn.

Studies show that 97 percent of New Year's resolutions are never fulfilled. In fact, more than half don't make it past the six-month mark. With an eye toward helping the local community successfully meet weight-loss resolutions in 2010, Mount Nittany Medical Center presented "Losing Weight for Your Health" on Tuesday, January 26.
During the seminar, Tom Malinich, MD, emergency physician at Mount Nittany Medical Center, explored the reasons people fail at losing weight and helped attendees put together the pieces for success. He explained why weight loss is important, offered tips to strengthen resolve in the face of temptation and gave reviews of popular diet programs.
"Crash diets and deprivation hold false promises of instant attainment of thinness, but they don't work," Malinich stressed. "If your eating habits and gym dates are being sabotaged by late nights at the office, running between school activities or just plain lack of willpower, now is the time to rid yourself of the word diet and make this the year that you achieve your goal."
A tip sheet with advice on how to meet weight-loss goals was distributed at the seminar. If you missed the talk, the sheet can be found here . The seminar was part of Mount Nittany's ongoing mission to provide helpful, health events for the community.
