MJC’s Veterans Resource Center serves approximately 800 veterans who are MJC students. The center serves as the liaison between the veteran and the Department of Veterans Affairs and provides career planning, financial aid, and other student services.

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss.

Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
