Parents everywhere may be looking forward to dipping into that plastic pumpkin to sneak a Halloween treat tonight – and for several nights to come. Is that so bad?
Not necessarily, according to Johnson and Wales University pediatric nutrition expert Barbara Robinson. She joined us in the studio to talk about Halloween candy, along with a giant bag of "fun size" treats.
The first day of classes started with a bang for many students at Johnson & Wales University when a utility cable exploded underneath two dormitories. The blast occurred at roughly 5:00 in the morning. Johnson & Wales officials said they had to evacuate nearly 1,000 students, most of them freshmen.
National Grid is investigating the cause of the explosion, which appeared to center on a cable located in an underground vault just next to the university's Providence dorms. No one was injured in the incident.
There’s no shortage of advice on healthy eating. But sometimes it seems there’s a shortage of reliable advice. Medical schools traditionally don’t offer much training in nutrition, but a new partnership between Johnson & Wales University and Tulane medical school could change that.
Brown University's medical school and Johnson & Wales University's new physician assistant program are going to look for ways to collaborate, the schools announced today. What might that look like? According to the announcement: "sharing training facilities, jointly arranging lectures, pursuing educational grants, and engaging in cost-sharing."
