On Friday, March 22nd, 2024, the Health & Counselling Centre hosted its first ever emBODY Wellness EXPO! And it was a total success! 

A huge thanks to everyone who worked hard to make this event happen! Also, thanks to all students and staff who attended the EXPO! We appreciate you all!

emBODY Wellness EXPO was an event that aimed to bring together students, staff and faculty to explore the systems of the body and learn how taking care of those systems positively impacts well-being and success. Those who attended were able to participate in interactive activities and engage in meaningful discussions about physical health and the extensive resources accessible on and off-campus! We learned how to proactively care for ourselves to ensure academic success and longevity! Woohoo!

The event took place at the RAWC Gym A/B from 11am to 2pm on Friday March 22, 2024. This event was fully in-person!
