Health promotion

Health Promotion

The Health Promotion Services provided by Student Health and Wellness educate, promote and advocate for optimal student health and academic success by working in collaboration with students, faculty, services and community agencies,  while providing opportunities for student engagement in individual and community health and wellness issues.

Our goal is to empower students during various stages of change for healthy living and academic success by offering resources, services, programs and activities that focus on student wellness and overall subjective health. Follow @lakeheadlife  (Thunder Bay) or @lakeheadlifeor (Orillia) on social media, or visit our events page to learn about upcoming programs and events. 


Let's Work Together

If you are running an event on campus related to health and wellness, Student Health and Wellness wants to collaborate! Our Health Promoter or Peer Wellness Educators can provide resources and educational activities to accompany your event.
