January 2015

From public lectures to signature celebrations such as Canada Day, we're honoured to invite our community to the University of Waterloo.

Alzheimer Awareness Month

At the University of Waterloo our research positively impacts our society and the lives of those in our community. At the Murray Alzheimer Research and Education Program (MAREP), in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences,  research and educational activities are intergrated in an effort to improve dementia care practices in Canada. MAREP works with researchers, people with dementia, families, staff and community members in the Waterloo region to build knowledge around effective practices for care and support.

Calling all Donors

The Blood Signal, a media campaign to signify times of great need for donated blood, is activated numerous times per year. To help prevent these times of great need the University of Waterloo hosts a number of blood donor clinics throughout the year. Each year through these clinics Waterloo donates over 800 units of blood to help those in need.

Premier Wynne talks to local students

Partnering with Wilfrid Laurier University, the University of Waterloo hosted Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and members of our campus communities on Tuesday afternoon. Students had the unique opportunity to interact with Premier Wynne during a series of discussions and Q&A session.

Teens in Motion

At Waterloo’s Faculty of Applied Health Sciences we know that healthy bodies and healthy minds go hand in hand. This is why UW Fitness leverages research and teaching expertise from our department of Kinesiology to offer a number of program and services to our community

One such example is Teens In Motion (TIM), a free exercise programs for clinically overweight teenagers.  Launched in 2006, TIM has helped over 130 youth develop the knowledge and skills to lead a healthier life.
