Carissa Harris//The Miami Hurricane

McKenzi Payne, a 19-year-old junior from Miami, receives her waist measurements during the kick-off of the Tau Rho Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta’s Health Initiative titled Red Alert. Payne was measured by Nastasha Pollard, a member of the sorority and a junior Nursing major, on October 11, 2010 in the University Center’s lower lounge. Students, such as Payne, who decided to participate in Red Alert received waist measurements, BMI and blood pressure readings as well as information about the year-long initiative. Red Alert health initiative, a year-long program to promote health and physical activity, administers free health assessments and sign-ups on the UC Patio from 12-2 pm. The Tau Rho Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc and Excersize Physiology Organization created the Red Alert Initiative to help the university become more physically active and aware of their health. The initiative will culminate in a 5k walk/run around campus.
