Our Trail to Wellness

Lakehead University is committed to supporting the holistic health and well-being of our Lakehead community, recognizing that investing in the enhancement of health and wellness interventions will better position us for success in both the classroom and the workplace. Our wellness strategy was developed through an iterative and multi-phased process which identified constructive themes and included opportunities for an increased focus: campus safety, physical and mental health, healthy eating, and overall healthy behaviour and habits.
