Our Healthy UBC team has been busy over the past few months. Check out some of our Out and About photos below!
Suicide Awareness Day 2017
What a successful day! With the help of staff, faculty and student volunteers, we were able to hand out close to 4,000 Suicide Awareness pens and resource cards in addition to hosting two QPR Suicide Prevention workshops. We truly are making progress in creating a caring campus by increasing awareness and decreasing the stigma around suicide.
We are well on our way in the nine-week Walkabout Challenge and are participating on one of four human resources teams enrolled this year. The Majesties in Motion (see our lovely team pic below) are averaging around 320,000 steps a week!
Dog Walk to Tower Beach
To snag some extra social steps, we participated in the Dog Walker’s Stroll, one of the Step It Up weekly guided walks. We met up with around 40 colleagues from across campus, as well as five of their furry friends, and headed for a gorgeous sunny walk to the beach and back!
Team Building: Cooking Class
Our Health, Wellbeing and Benefits team ventured to Nourish Café on 10th Avenue for a fun and food-filled afternoon. We learned how to make hummus, crackers, Mediterranean roasted chicken, cauliflower and kale, and a millet and roasted squash salad with tahini dressing. Delish!
Travelling Health Fair 2017
We have just finished our annual health screenings! Thank you to the more than 200 people who came out to receive their free diabetes screening.
