Staying Well at the U of L

September 2014 - Staying Well Profile, Angela Luck staying well at the U of L.pdf

How do YOU Stay Well at the U of L?  Do you have an interest you enjoy outside of work, something that helps stretch and maintain your physical and/or mental well-being? If so, we'd love to display it in our rotating 'Staying Well at the U of L' feature on our website.

Take a photo of your talent, interest or yourself in action. You could display a quilt, or some wood-turning, a woven scarf, or a jar of jam. Email wellness@uleth.ca with your photo and we will display on a rotating basis on our website and other U of L wellness publications (monthly wellness newsletter, Wellness Facebook, Twitter)

Is there a picture of you with a marathon medal, or a record trout? Maybe you make the world's best nachos, or you've golfed at Augusta?

*Please note your submission will be displayed, along with your name and department, on our U of L Wellness webpage and related publications.  Check this out on a regular basis - You'll learn about the wellness interests of your U of L colleagues, plus maybe even discover a new bridge partner, or mountain biking companion, or someone with a hobby that matches yours.-More info - call Suzanne at 5217 or email wellness@uleth.ca
