Eating right, staying fit, and keeping a normal weight are just some of the things people can do to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. David Satcher, former Surgeon General of the United States, will present, What Americans Can Do to Maintain Their Health, on Tuesday, Jan. 10, at 7 p.m. in the Maxwell Theatre, as part of ASU’s 2006 Cullum Lecture Series.
