From day to day, you might fill the role of a student, parent, caregiver, or one of many other roles. Regardless of the one (or many!) you play, we all face the challenge of keeping well.
In this workshop, you will learn strategies for managing stress, burnout and improving your mental and physical health. Join Naturopathic Doctor Whitney Baxter (BSc ’10) and Physiotherapist Surabhi Veitch (BSc ’09) as they share actionable strategies related to movement, nutrition and breath work.
This event is being hosted in celebration of International Women’s Day.
