Nutrition and Hydration

Staying Hydrated

Residents rarely make it to water. Staying hydrated when things get busy is hard and there are often 14 things standing between a resident and the next water fountain. And often a cool drink of water can be even more invigorating than a cup of coffee and keep you going without getting dehydrated. We will be giving all the residents and students Cooper water bottles to keep with you in your white coat.
