Check out the great sales at the Bruin Store this week

Tuesday, March 30th, 2021

Today (Wednesday) through Friday, April 2, come by the Bruin Store for two killer deals! We have brand new tees under $10, and all items from the Closet Project are two-for-$1.

The Closet Project is an initiative launched by the Bruin Store team to bring affordable professional attire to students. All of our inventory has been donated by other students, faculty, staff, parents and community members, all of who want to help you be adequately prepared for upcoming interviews and internships.

Every single item is sold for $1 (except for our two-for-$1 sale this week), and every single dollar goes directly to the Bruin Community Pantry to combat food insecurity. Purchasing from the Closet Project is a great way to build your professional wardrobe and give back at the same time.

At this time, all purchases from the Closet Project are cash only.

Volunteers 60 to 90 years old needed for participation in PT study

Tuesday, March 30th, 2021

We are interested in the use of telehealth as a way to screen for frailty in community-dwelling older adults using the modified Physical Performance Test. The study will be taking place Monday, April 5, at 3:30 p.m. in the Roberts Center.

In order to qualify for this study, you must:

  • Be 60-90 years old
  • Live independently or in an assisted living facility
  • Be able to walk without the help of another person
  • Pass a mental status exam

In order to qualify for this study, you must not:

  • Have been diagnosed with a neurological condition
  • Have a current illness or health issues that would make performing physical activities unsafe

If you qualify for this study, you may be asked to come to campus, where you will be asked to perform a physical performance test both in a lab setting and a telehealth setting.

Cameras will record the movement of markers that will be placed on your body, and force plates in the ground will record your foot contact during the sit-to-stand activity in the lab. Your performance during the telehealth activities will be recorded.

The testing session will last approximately one hour. If interested, please contact research staff member Lyndsay Stutzenberger ( or 503-554-2463).

Wellness Wednesday Tip: Connect with others!

Tuesday, March 30th, 2021

Did you know that loneliness is linked to an increased risk of chronic disease? Harvard researchers found that loneliness and/or social isolation were associated with a 29% increased risk of heart attack and 32% greater risk of stroke. This risk level is similar to that of light smoking or obesity, according to the researchers.

During this time of social distancing, it is important to find safe ways to stay connected and maintain our social support networks. So take care of yourself by picking up the phone and calling a family member or going for a walk with a friend!
